This is another recipe that goes back to my childhood days and brings up wonderful memories of my Mother and how she always had fresh, home-baked goodies waiting for us when we got home from school.

2
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
3
Add vanilla and egg; beat until light and fluffy.
4
Sift flour and salt over the creamed mixture and blend into other ingredients thoroughly.
5
Form into 1 inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheet.
6
Press down the balls with the tines of a fork.
7
Bake in preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes, or just until golden brown.

It is a good idea to check bottoms of cookies for doneness before entire baking time is finished. These cookies will harden as they cool, and you don't want to overbake them!
