Why has nobody rated these cookies yet??? I've been searching for *years* for the perfect, chewy peanut butter cookie... and THIS IS IT!! I used the medium sized Pampered Chef cookie scoop and didn't bother flattening them with a fork, and they baked up perfectly in 14 minutes. They'll flatten on their own once they cool, so unless you really like the criss cross pattern I wouldn't bother. The cookie itself is rich and chewy in the center with crispy edges - just like the kind the bakeries sell. You just can't lose with a Cook's Illustrated recipe. Thanks for posting!!
I made these today.They are delicious crispy and chewy with a strong peanut butter taste. This is going right into my best cookies file. Jan In ParkRidge IL
I love this recipe. I never give 5 stars because nothing is perfect but these are pretty darn close... I needed to bake some cookies at 11 at night for a friend at school so I found these and they were sooo good and saved me from major clean up and long prep times
This is the BEST peanut butter cookie recipe ever! Everyone who tasted the cookies went crazy over them. I prefer not to press them with a fork.
Very moist cookies. Love them, They r just what I was looking for
