These cookies deviate from the standard in that they are not pushed down with a fork prior to baking. These had a softer texture than your traditional peanut butter cookie. Dorie's secret ingredient was nutmeg which I did not taste, maybe I will put in more next time. My only rogue moment was rough chopping the peanuts instead of finely chopped. I love a good peanut crunch. If you are a peanut lover you will love them too.
