Cassy's Peanut Butter Cookies

Cassy's Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter (I prefer crunchy)
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Optional: 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Cream together the butter, brown sugar and peanut butter.  Add the egg and vanilla extract, mix well.  Add in the flour, baking soda and salt.  

Optional: Add chocolate chips for a peanut butter chocolate chip version!

Roll dough into 1-inch balls (or drop by tablespoon scoop) and place onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Made a criss-cross design with a fork, slightly pushing cookie down.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to cooling rack.
