Peanut butter cookies

So light and buttery...yum!

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt

In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the peanut butter mixture. Form dough into walnut sized balls and place them 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Dip a fork into flour and criss cross each cookie to flatten slightly.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in oven preheated to 375 degrees until just lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for two minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I found a recipe for what look like amazing chocolate cookies with peanut butter on the inside. As soon as we're done detoxing I'm making them. Provided they taste as good as they sound - I'll send you the recipe!
