ISO crispy, chewy, greasy Peanut Butter Cookies

Way long ago, when trans-fats were not the devil incarnate , there were these peanut butter cookie dough tubes in the refrigerator section. Not sure if we're allowed to mention brands here, but it began with a P. We're talking 20 years ago. The new tubes just don't have it.

These cookies were the perfect balance of crispy and chewy, and were definitely on the greasy side, but I loved them. I have been searching ever since, for a peanut butter cookie recipe that would come close, and haven't had any luck. Most of them are more crunchy than crispy, and almost dry. I have probably tried 20 different recipes, and was hoping someone here would remember these cookies, and have a suggestion. Anyone?

Thanks!!
SOB

Oh my. Sorry this went unanswered so long SOB, I'll hunt up my two PB cookie recipes for you. They are chewy and yummy and if you leave them on a piece of paper they leave a grease circle.
