The additional sugar will alter the result of the baked cookie. More than likely, it will not retain it's shape, spreading much more than desired. Most of baking is based on chemical reactions between ingredients. If you really desired more peanut flavour, why not add peanut flavoured chips?? Or create a peanut flavoured glaze?
