Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Peanut halves, unsalted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees f. Blend the butter and peanut butter. Add the sugar and brown sugar and blend well. Add the egg and vanilla and blend well. Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the peanut butter mixture and blend well. Drop the dough by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet, leaving 1-1/2 inches between drops. Flatten each cookie with a fork (dipped in flour, if necessary), pressing it into the cookie in both directions to make criss-cross pattern. Press two peanut halves into the top of each cookie. Bake for 15 minutes. The cookies should be slightly browned and just beginning to get firm to the touch. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
