Preheat the oven to 350'
Put the peanut butter, softened butter (or coconut oil) and sugars in a large bowl and using hand mixer to combine until smooth
Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix again until fully combined
In a separate bowl, add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine and then pour into the bowl with the wet ingredients
Use rubber spatula to fully combine and then use a cookie scoop to scoop out dough and roll into a ball. You should get about 24 total
Place the balls on a lined baking sheet (parchment paper or a silicone mat) and then gently press the top of each ball down with the back of a fork (vertical and horizontal) to make the classic criss cross pattern (can sprinkle granulated sugar on top if desired)
Bake for 7-9 minutes, be careful not to over bake, you want them to be soft and chewy. Let cool on a cookie rack. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag
Drizzle some melted peanut butter over the top for extra PB flavor if desired!
