Peanut Butter Cookies

The last time I visited my parents, my mother made peanut butter cookies. They were delicious, but we both agreed, a bit too crumbly. Ever since, I've been on the hunt for a good peanut butter cookie and I think I may have found them. These are flourless and nice and rich, just like a cookie should be. The recipe called for chocolate chips, but I left them out. Add in one cup of chocolate chips if you want to use them.

Where does one purchase vanilla bean paiste? These seem as though they would be a good lower carb choice.
