They are quick and easy enough to make “just because” and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already.

My kids and I made a batch of these to send in to my husband’s work “just because.”

Directions:
In a mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.  Add the salt, flour, and baking soda and stir until just combined.  Cover and put in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
