      1/2  cup           sweet butter -- at room temperature
      1/2  cup           each sugar and brown sugar
        1                egg
        1  cup           smooth pure peanut butter

 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter cookie sheets and set aside. With
 an electric mixer beat the butter until soft. Add the sugars and beat until

 overmix. Roll the dough into small balls and place them on prepared cookie
 sheet. With a fork press the balls into flat cookies and bake for 15 to 17
 minutes or until crisp and golden.
 
 For added touch melt some bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler remove
 and cool down a bit. When still pliable dip one edge of cookies into
 chocolate.
