These cookies are delicious! I made them today and all of my kids LOVED them! I asked them how many stars and it was a definate 5! Very easy to make. The chocolate and peanut butter go great together. I did add 1/2 tsp.(about - I eyeballed it) of vanilla to the batter. If you wet your fork with a little water it doesn't stick to the dough when you are making the criss cross pattern. The dough is rather soft. These are a definate keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Very yummy. I substituted 1/2 cup of flour for a 1/2c. of coco for a choclaty taste, although you could definatly taste the peanut butter. Will make again!
