My Mom used to make peanut butter cookies for me when I was a kid.  I loved them then and still do, especially eaten with a glass of milk.  I most liked to help with making the fork criss-cross on top.  This recipe is slightly different from my mom’s–it uses less sugar, flour, and butter. 

1 stick butter
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
          Cream.

1 egg
          Beat in.

1 ¼ cups flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
          Mix in until well blended.  Roll into 1-inch balls, dip top in sugar, then place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Criss-cross top and flatten with fork.

350 degrees, 15-20 minutes. 

Makes 3 dozen small cookies.
