Answer by Juniper

1 1/4 c Flour
3/4 t Baking soda
1/4 t Salt
1/2 c Margarine (l stick)
1/2 c Peanut butter
1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Packed brown sugar
1 Egg
1/2 t Vanilla

Stir together flour, soda, and salt. In a mixer bowl beat butter for 30 seconds. Add peanut butter and sugars; beat till fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture; beat till well combined. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in granulated sugar, if desired. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet; crisscross with the tines of a fork. Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes. Cool about 1 minute before removing to a wire rack. Makes 48. For an alternative, do not crisscross with a fork. Simply cook as directed. Upon removing cookies from the oven, place a chocolate candy Kiss in the center of each cookie, unwrappped of course. Press slightly and cool completely. You can wrap cookie dough into a 1 inch ball around a candy kiss and cook as directed. This gives you a cookie with a chocolate center.

    2 c. flour
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 1/4 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
    1 1/4 c. white sugar
    1 c. butter, softened
    3 lg. eggs
    1 c. creamy peanut butter
    2 tsp. vanilla

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well and set aside. In large bowl, blend sugars using an electric mixer. Add butter to form a grainy paste. Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and mix at low speed until just mixed.
    Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. With a wet fork (be sure to dip fork in water after each cookie as dough is sticky), gently press a criss-cross pattern on top of cookie. Bake 9 to 12 minutes. Transfer immediately to a cool surface.
