Hello again:
I'm back from work with excellent results.
Hey Scotch, I want to also include an image of my cookies baked with your mom's recipe. I just need a bit of help. I uploaded ( it that's the correct term?) to my photobucket account. In the body of this message screen do I type the link? I have done it before, but just can't remember how.
With the image I will tell all the exciting news!
thank you
Denise

If I would have just took a minute to read the FAQ, I can just get the image from my own computer - anyways....

I used scotch's mom's recipe and also MexicoKaren's idea to roll the balls in sugar before squishing with the fork.

Well they are just the perfect cookies!!! The dough using Scotch's recipe was so nice and firm it didn't need to chill - just rolled and squished and baked. I'm so happy with these cookies.
I made a batch this morning and needed to make another this afternoon - how delightful they tasted - I of course had to try a few myself (quality control I call it).
thanks for the great help all!!!

I've been meaning to find a good recipe and make some of these! Wonderful. Do you think it would come out well using crunchy PB? What about adding some peanuts? What type would work best? (Probably not honey dry roasted) Would you add the nuts to the dough or just press a few into each cookie after "forking" flat?

You can also cut your butter with shortening to lower the cost and still have a butter flavor. Commercial bakeries do this a lot.

In fact, you can buy butter flavored shortening.
Also, the chilling trick works.

I always use Jif Extra Crunchy. You can see the peanut chunks in the photo I posted. I don't think it needs more peanut pieces, but it wouldn't hurt.

I'm prejudiced, obviously, but I really don't think butter or butter-flavored shortening would improve these cookies one bit. They have a distinct peanut flavor with what seems to me to be a hint of honey, and they're crisp but light in texture.
