1 cup Parkay margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1 TBSP vanilla
1 cup Jif peanut butter
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
In a mixer, combine margarine, both sugars, eggs and beat until creamy. Add vanilla, salt, baking soda, peanut butter and add flour a cup at a time. When you get to the third cup it might be too stiff for the mixer so you may need to continue by hand. Drop teaspoonsful on a greased cookie sheet. Use a few TBSP of sugar in a small dish. Use a fork and put one criss cross on the first cookie to get the fork sticky. Dip fork in the sugar each time as you add criss cross pattern to all of the cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until brown.
