 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/4   c            Flour
      3/4   t            Baking soda
      1/4   t            Salt
      1/2   c            Margarine (l stick)
      1/2   c            Peanut butter
      1/2   c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Packed brown sugar
    1                    Egg
      1/2   t            Vanilla
 
   Stir together flour, soda, and salt.  In a mixer bowl
   beat butter for 30 seconds.  Add peanut butter and
   sugars; beat till fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla; beat
   well.  Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture; beat
   till well combined.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls;
   roll in granulated sugar, if desired.  Place 2 inches
   apart on an ungreased cookie sheet; crisscross with
   the tines of a fork.  Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes .
    Cool about 1 minute before removing to a wire rack.
    Makes 48. For an alternative, do not crisscross with
   a fork.  Simply cook as directed.  Upon removing
   cookies from the oven, place a chocolate candy Kiss in
   the center of each cookie, unwrappped of course.
    Press slightly and cool completely.  You can wrap
   cookie dough into a 1 inch ball around a candy kiss
   and cook as directed.  This gives you a cookie with a
   chocolate center.  This is also another great
   alternative.
