Sift flour and baking soda together in a medium bowl and set aside.  Put the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy but not fluffy, about 1 minute.  Add the peanut butter, egg and vanilla and beat until just smooth, about 30 seconds.  Stir in the reserved flour with a wooden spoon until just combined.  Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 12.

Preheat oven to 325°.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Using a small ice cream scoop to measure out cookies in small balls.  Place on the cookie sheets about 2-1/2" apart.  Use tines of fork to flatten balls to a thickness of about ½" and to make a grid pattern on top.  Bake until golden brown about 15 minutes.  Cool completely before storing in airtight containers for up to 2 weeks.
