The same reason why peanut butter cookies have cross hatching: nostalgia.

Any idea what the rationale was originally?

Because the peanut butter is so thick, they need more surface area to dissipate heat.

I meant for the stamps but ... on the peanut butter, really? That seems to be a perfectly good rationale now, as opposed to just doing it out of a sense of nostalgia.

Well, it is still a good reason when they are actually peanut butter cookies. When they are normal cookies but have a little bit of artificial peanut butter flavoring, it makes slightly less sense.
