Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes I make these without adding chocolate chips or peanut butter chips (like in the 1st picture) just to make them traditional. But usually I add stuff (like in the 2nd picture) especially cuz I love chocolate. Anyway this is a good peanut butter cookie recipe. Theyre super soft, hence the title.

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter or Crisco
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup mini reeses peices baking bits or chocolate chips (optional)

Combine butter and sugars until creamy. Add peanut butter, mix well. Add egg, vanilla, baking soda, and then salt and mix until everything is well combined. Gradually add the flour and then the baking bits (if you'd like.) Roll dough into 1/4-cup-full-sized balls and then roll the balls in additional granualted sugar. Place dough balls on cookie sheet and, with a the back side of a fork, make a crisscross pattern on each cookies (this step is optional if you used baking bits.) Bake at 350 for 7 to 10 minutes.
