ISO chewy (not cakey) peanut butter cookie

My favorite bakery sells a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie that has the texture of a gooey, flat chocolate chip cookie (not the regular fork-pressed peanut butter cookie). I've googled "chewy" cookies and failed. Can I just substitute peanut butter for half of the butter in my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe? Any suggestions?

Oops! I responded too fast (Read your title without reading the details underneath.) Yes, you can substitute 1/2 the peanut butter for 1/2 the butter. If your recipe doesn't call for brown sugar, use it also, as it adds to the chewy factor. Here's an example of a Chewy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe...
