1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup peanut halves
2 tablespoons green and red M & M miniature baking bits
4 teaspoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips
60 pieces red shoestring licorice (2 inches each)

In large mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Refrigerate for one hour or until easy to handle.

Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Pinch each ball at one end to taper. Insert two peanut halves in center of each ball for ears. Add one M and M baking bit for nose and two chocolate chips for eyes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Gently insert one licorice piece into each warm cookie for tail. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 5 dozen.
