Preheat your oven to 350°F and get a large baking sheet out.
In a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer add peanut butter and both sugars and beat until thoroughly combined.
Add in egg and mix until thoroughly combined.
Add in baking soda, vanilla, and salt if using, mix until combined and dough comes together. You should be able to press dough together and it hold.
Form one inch balls by rolling dough between your palms. Place on baking sheet, two inches apart.
Place the extra tablespoon of white sugar in a small bowl and dip a fork into it. Press down on the cookies to create a cross hatch pattern. Sprinkle with extra sugar if desired.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes then remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a cooling rack. Once cool, store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
*Big brand, natural, or homemade peanut butters all work. Please be sure to thoroughly mix natural or homemade peanut butters before measuring to reincorporate any separated oil.*Most peanut butters contain salt. If you have a homemade, salt free peanut butter or want a bit more salt, add a pinch of salt to the dough with the vanilla.
