These are chewy cookies (unusual for most peanut butter cookies!), and I was surprised at just how peanut buttery they taste, given they don't contain much peanut butter. Very convenient to keep in your freezer. I did find I had to bake these longer than stated. Add 3 hours refrigeration to the times listed. From Cooking Light (November 1997).
