When I made this recipe, I didn't pay attention to the directions very much. I thought that it was calling for crushed peanuts that would never be blended and I didn't like that very much. So, I made the cookies without the peanuts. Later, I wondered why I couldn't roll the cookies into balls, and I figured out that the BLENDED peanuts, were to keep the cookies together. However, the cookies still turned out great. I just dropped them in little circles on the pan and sprinkled sugar over them. A good idea for someone wanting less peanut butter taste! However, next time I will try them with the added peanuts to blend!
