1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup peanut halves
1/4 cup small candy
60 3-inch pieces red shoestring licorice

1. Mix butter and peanut butter together until creamy. Add brown and white sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla extract and baking soda until well blended. With mixer on low, mix in flour just until blended. Cover then chill for 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
3. Shape 1 level tablespoon of dough into 1 inch balls. Taper each ball at one end into a teardrop shape. Press flat on one side. Place flat sides down, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Press the sides of the dough in to raise the 'backs' of the mice, as dough will spread slightly during baking.
4. Use 2 peanut halves in each 'mouse' for ears, and 2 pieces of candy for eyes.
5. With a toothpick make a hole 1/2 inch deep in the tail ends.
6. Bake ifor 8 to 10 minutes.
7. Insert licorice pieces as tails.
