I've been trying different peanut butter cookie recipes for a long time now looking for one that did not produce a flat, chewy cookie. I actually like dry crispy ones instead. This recipe fits the bill. The only chocolate that my wife and I like in peanut butter cookies is white baking chocolate , so I omitted the m&m's and chips. I did add a half of a cup of chopped dry roasted salted peanuts and left out the salt per the salt contained in the peanuts. Thanks Tammy, I really enjoyed these cookies and I am very glad to have finally found a recipe that works for us!
