Well, here you go favorite daughter, Morgan. I did as you asked, I made the cookies today and I would say yes to them.   Wish you could come over and try one for yourself.  They are a little chewy, crunchy, peanut butter cookie.  I got 28 cookies making them bigger then what they suggested.  If one is going to eat a cookie, I want a cookie big. 

Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies
Real Simple     realsimple

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup strawberry or raspberry jam

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Using your large mixing bowl combine the butter and sugars and mix well. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl then add the egg, vanilla and peanut butter and continue to mix. Sift the flour, salt and baking soda then add to the mixing bowl. Mix and scrape the bowl. By hand mix in the rice krispies and the chopped peanuts. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and use your ice cream cookie scoop and place mounds of batter on the parchment paper. Using a fork press the dough as if doing peanut butter cookies and make a small indention in the center of each cookie. Place about one teaspoon of your favorite jam. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before moving them to the cooling rack.
