  3. Add sugars and cream until light and fluffy.
  4. Add egg and vanilla and mix in.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix until well-blended.
  6. Mix in optional ½ cup coarsely chopped peanuts for a crunchier cookie.
  7. Shape into 1-inch balls.
  8. Place 2-inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

What kind of peanut butter should you use? I prefer salty and crunchy for my cookies, but it is really personal choice.
