I assume most recipes call for creamy. Should I use more crunchy? Should there be a cooking adjustment for time or temp?

Nope. For peanut butter cookies it's just a matter of taste, and it's 1:1.

  • Won't the cookies (the part that isn't peanut chunks) be more "floury" if it's substituted 1:1?

    @Random832 In my experience, no. Even though recipes often specify creamy or chunky, I have always just used whatever I have on hand. I've made them hundreds of times, from different recipes, they're a go-to rainy day kind of thing. I have a batch in the works right now, as a matter of fact. I have never noticed any issue or problem with straight subbing back and forth.

Absolutely no difference. The small volume that the nuts take up is not enough to change the consistency of the product.

Around here they sell extra-crunchy.
