Grandma Gayle's Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup all-purpose flour (plus 1 to 2 tablespoons more as needed)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add all other ingredients and blend thoroughly. Add additional flour (1 teaspoon at a time) if dough is not stiff enough -- it should be stiff but not dry.

Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten each cookie with the tines of floured fork, making a crosshatch on each cookie.

Bake about 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly brown. Cool slightly on cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.
