Below is the recipe with my comments.
They were silky and made a very pretty presentation. They didn't rise much, so they stayed true to the "forked pattern" I created and looked like pretty little packets. I made about 5 as noted, but the rest I wrapped each dough ball around 4 or 5 chocolate chips. Quite yummy.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Nonstick cooking spray
3/4 cup all-purpose flour - Used white whole wheat
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour - Used white whole wheat
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup unsalted butter -- softened --Just realized I used almost 1/4 pound, 7T. Can't imagine less would've worked. - They weren't oily at all.
3/4 cup smooth natural peanut butter Used TJ's crunchy, unsalted, and I pour the oil off.
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar Didn't pack the sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flours and baking soda. In another large bowl, beat together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until well combined. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, blending well.
Shape the dough into 3/4-inch balls, and place on the baking sheets.
Use the tines of a fork to lightly flatten each ball, making a crisscross pattern. Bake until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Thanks so much for posting the recipe/review. I need a little thank you gift and I was thinking of making cookies, and they are big PB fans.
Peanut Butter Cookies are my all time favorite, I love that these didn't really rise much, those are so good!!

TKS for the PB cookie recipe. My family loves anything with PB. I think I'll surprise them with cookies today.
Tried this recipe today and it was a hit. The cookies were crisp, very pretty (didn't rise as some have done in the past) and my family thought they were great. Thanks for the recipe. Its a keeper.
