Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix in creamy peanut butter until well combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture, mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. Place them on the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each.
Use a fork to flatten each cookie and create a crisscross pattern on the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The centers should still be soft.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, indulge in the classic goodness of Peanut Butter Cookies.
