Peanut Butter Cookies

I've been experimenting with peanut butter cookies recipes that have a criss-cross pattern on them.  The recipes I've tried yielded a dough that was too soft to make the criss-cross pattern until I came across the absolutely perfect recipe on line!

 This dough is stiff enough to make the classic criss-cross pattern.  The finished cookie tastes great: crispy around the edges and soft and chewy in the middle.  This will be my new go-to peanut butter cookie recipe.

1/2 cup room temperature butter
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 room temperature egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1.  Cream the butter then add the peanut butter.
2.  Add brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat until fluffy.
3.  Beat in egg and vanilla.
4.  Mix in the flour and baking soda until blended.
5.  Roll dough into balls and apply criss cross pattern using a fork.
6.  Bake at 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
