In a mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, butter, sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour or overnight.
Roll into 1 inch balls. Pinch one end, forming a teardrop shape. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets; press to flatten. For ears, place 2 peanuts into each cookie near the pointed end. Using a toothpick make a 1/2 inch deep hole for the tail in the end opposite the ears. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until golden. While cookies are warm, insert licorice for tails.
