On a cookie sheet, dish cookie dough out evenly.  Don’t worry about them being too close together.  They don’t spread out much.  In fact, have you ever wondered why most PB cookies have those “grid” marks on top of them?  Well, that’s because since they don’t spread out, you have to smash them down with a fork!
