I made this recipe when I was craving peanut butter cookies. Everyone who tried them loved them because they were so soft! I made mine tiny bite size cookies and the recipe made a bunch.

Chose this recipe because of the chef's bio, which was terrific; great and inspiring to see younger generation so happy with the simpler things in life. Cookies were delicious; my 4 yr old loved them. She helped to make them, recipe was simple enough. Followed recipe but subbed all organic ingredients on the list and did cut the sugar back just a bit and used turbinado sugar, since she would be eating a lot of them. We will make these again...nice texture; great flavor. Best wishes to you and your endeavors!
