@ chef 1396052. I would guess you probably used margarine not butter and that is why it would taste like "pure shortening", because the shortening ratio is not that great!!! Or you used old rancid shortening and that is what you tasted. I have used this recipe for years. It's ratios are correct so you don't taste shortening like some of the other ones that use all shortening. You also have to use a good quality peanut butter and not the bottom of a stale jar or it. Great recipe its a keeper!!
A very nice peanut butter cookie, indeed. Nice texture and taste and the whole kitchen smelled so nice when they came out of the oven. And boy, you sure do get a lot of cookies!!! Thank you for a recipe definitely worth saving.
I rarely make peanut butter cookies, but these had such a lovely texture, I might do it again. I put chocolate chips on some of mine.
These cookies are awesome! I didn't mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl because I don't like to do dishes. These cookie was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle...loved them!
These were easy to throw together and tasted great. Thanks!
We had a craving for something sweet, and this recipe hit the spot! I had all ingredients on hand, and the was such a quick recipe. Thanks for posting this awesome recipe! We will be making these again soon!
These are awesome!
Great cookie - easy to make, delicious to eat! I followed the directions exactly! I put this recipe in my cookie file in the kitchen and will make again at Christmas. Thanks!
I had bought a jar of natural peanut butter that had no sugar added and discovered that I did not like it. So I wanted to find a cookie recipe to use it in to get rid of it. Boy, did I choose the right one! These cookies are wonderful! Thanks for helping me transform something that didn't taste too good into something YUMMY!
These are by far the best peanut butter cookie that I have made. Perfect texture and chewiness. Thanks for the great recipe.
