Use either smooth or crunchy peanut butter for this recipe. Smooth peanut butter will give you a smoother consistency cookie and crunchy  peanut butter will give you some bits of peanuts throughout each bite of the cookie.

Stir in some mini chocolate chips for chocolate chip peanut butter cookies or stir in chopped peanuts for a nice crunch.

I recommend putting the dough in the fridge for at least an hour before portioning out and pressing the marks on top of the cookie.  If you don’t get a chance, no worries…but the marks won’t stand out as much.
