  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line at least 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment or with hand mixer and large bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, light brown sugar, and 1 cup of sugar until fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.
  • Then beat in the pure vanilla extract.
  • Add the baking soda, salt and all purpose flour. Mix on low speed until just fully incorporated.
  • Add remaining ½ cup of sugar to a separate bowl.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or 1 tablespoon, scoop dough and roll into balls. Roll balls in sugar then place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  • Using the tines of a fork, press gently on the center of the cookie dough in a criss-cross pattern, or flatten with the palm of your hand.
  • Bake cookies 8-10 minutes until centers no longer look wet and edges are set.
  • Let cookies cool 3 minutes on pans and then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
