Peanut Butter Cookies

I love peanut butter cookies. This recipe is from Joy of Cooking. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup flour

Cream the butter then slowly beat in the brown sugar followed by the white sugar.  Beat the egg and add it. (I never beat egg first unless I'm making something light and fluffy, so far it doesn't seem to matter) Add the soda, salt and beat it in with the vanilla. Beat in the peanut butter and finally the flour. Make two dozen balls of dough on two cookie sheets and flatten them with a fork. Bake 12 minutes or until golden.

They're half gone already and there's no kids in the house!
