These are really good. The texture reminds me of macaroons. Space them at least 1.5inches from each other. I got 68 cookies (47 if you count the ones that joined up during baking). My tablespoons were very generous. The PB gives it a very nice flavour. I'd add at least 1 cup each of choc chips, raisin and walnuts. It's a keeper.
