  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 – 16-ounce jar peanut butter
  • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 F. Sift flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl; set aside. Beat margarine, sugar and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Grease a cookie sheet. Round dough into balls and press down a little with your fingertips. Finish by pressing down with a fork. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
