Peanut Butter Raisin

My brother gave me the "Cookie Bible" for my birthday last year. I made the crunchy peanut butter cookie recipe in it and added some raisins for good fun.

1/2 cup butter at room temperature, diced
3/4 cup firmly packed soft light brown sugar
1 egg

pinch of salt
1/3 cup raisins

2. In another bowl, mix egg and vanilla, gradually beat into butter mixture
3. Stir in peanut butter and blend thoroughly. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into mixture to form soft dough. Fold in raisins. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes until firm.
