Combine peanut butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. This can be done in a mixer or by hand.
Add an egg, baking soda, a pinch of sea salt and vanilla. Mix another minute until fully combined.
The dough might look a little crumble but will hold up when scooped with a cookie scoop or tablespoon.
Scoop dough onto a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet about 1 1/2" apart using a standard size cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon.
Use the back of the tines of a fork to form a crisscross pattern.
Bake cookies in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown around the edges.
Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
