I love these cookies and finally decided to use this recipe. I was dissapointed in the peanutbutter taste. I avoided using the chopped peanuts, b/c I don't like that crunchiness in my cookie, but that might have been where the rest of the panut flavor went. If I try this recipe again, I will add more peanut butter, or try changing it a little to make the taste more to my liking. If I can't get it righ tby the third time, I will be looking for a new recipe to try.
