A twist on peanut butter cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies. The first time I made these I used peanuts, I will most likely use walnuts next time. But if you really like peanuts, use them, they go great with this recipe. Pecans would also be good.

I like the recipe but i wasnt sure if there was a typo in the ingredients list. It had 1/3 cup peanut butter then the next ingredient said 1/8 cup of peanut butter.

These are tasty but give a very dry sensation to your mouth. I attempted to remedy this by adding 2 TBS of honey and !/4 C peanut butter, but the difference was not really detectable. Finally made them into "thumbprints" wit a dollop of boysenberry preserves in hte hollow
