Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 375.
Mix chopped peanuts, sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix peanut butter and powdered sugar until blended. Shape mixture into 24 1" balls.
Cut the peanut butter cookie roll into 12 slices then cut each slice in half to make 24 pieces. Flatten slightly. Shape 1 cookie dough piece around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely. Repeat with remaining dough and balls. Roll each covered ball in peanut mixture, gently patting mixture onto balls.
On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart. Spray bottom of a glass with non-stick spray and press into remaining peanut mixture.
Flatten each ball into 1/4" thickness with glass. Sprinkle any remaining peanut mixture on top of cookies and press into dough.
Bake 7-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute then remove to cooling rack. Store tightly covered.
