In a large mixing bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar and 1/2 Cup granulated sugar 2 minutes or until creamy, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula.  Reduce speed to low; beat in vanilla, then egg.  Add peanut butter and beat on medium speed 2 minutes or until creamy.  Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture just until blended, occasionally scraping bowl.

Roll a tablespoon sized dough ball in sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.  Bake cookies for 10 - 12 minutes.
