I substituted one of the cups of sugar with brown sugar, and halfed the cup of white sugar (1 1/2 cups sugar)I didn't have to grease the pans & I used a whole 18oz jar of Crunchy jiff. My daughter wanted pb&j cookies so on top of the teaspoon of vanilla extract we added a teaspoon of strawberry extract. The color of the cookies is kinda pretty and there's just a hint of strawberry which is just perfect for people like me that don't care for too much going on in a simple cookie. I also used an icecream scoop to scoop the balls of cookies. Made it a lot faster!
* a note of caution to all... My family was in the hospital the whole month of October 2012 from "natural" Costco peanut butter. Salmonella. My niece actually got kidney damage and has to have surgery to fix her kidney on the one side. Salmonella is highly contagious! We had to be quarantined at the hospital. Some common side effects are diarrhea and/or fever, stomach upset etc... Pretty serious. Please wash your hands, work area, foods, tools completely and I recommend cooking the cookies the full 10 minutes to make sure the egg and peanut butter are cooked completely.
