    They had a perfect texture -- crisp and cracked on the outside and soft and chewy in the center. They really baked-up beautifully. I thought the cinnamon took away from the peanutty flavor, that they were a bit too sweet and not quite salty enough. Next time I make these I will swap more peanut butter for butter, cut back on the sugar slightly and add 1/4 teaspoon extra salt.
