Thease are DELISCIOUS! The best cookies I've ever eaten. Much better than any manufactured, although you'd that they were. I just had to share them. This recipe makes a lot of cookies for large groups or special occasions. You can cut ingredients in half to make two dozen instead. I hope that you like them as much as I do

PLEASE READ<br/><br/>The ingredients list 2 eggs but they aren't included in the instructions. What happened was I made the cookies and when the first batch came out I realized they were kind of crumbly, and it was because I had forgot about the eggs because of their absence in the instructions. I'm still giving it 4 stars because the cookies still taste great, I just wish the author hadn't been so clumsy when writing out the recipe.
These are delicious, a SUBTLE chocolate and p.b. taste which I like. I must have over-creamed the margarine and sugar, because the texture was off. I also was in a bit of a hurry, so wasn't careful about using strict 1 tb measurements - also a big mistake. I only had 1 sheet of Release foil left, so I used it along with a greased cookie sheet. The ones with the foil came out a bit dry and the ones with the greased cookie sheet were soft but a bit doughy tasting. All that being said, next time I'll correct the above errors and I'm sure we'll love them! Thanks!
This recipe is great! I love the fact that it makes so many cookies so you have some to share! The cookies have such a good flavor and texture. My family is already begging me to make more and they just finished off the last of the batch this morning!
