i saw this made on paula's home cooking recently, and she used splenda instead of sugar, but i don't use artificial sweeteners so i stuck with sugar (but did however use reduced fat peanut butter and the vanilla) and these were amazing. they were heavenly straight out of the oven and still oh so yummy when they were cooled...a big plus in my book!! i will definitely make these again and again!!
As I'm sitting here at my desk, HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE, to the LAST COOKIE!!!! I'm kicking myself for not quadrupling the batch! That's okay, they only take a couple of minute to whip up. I promised DH peanut butter cookies today, and as quickly as they were cool enough to pick up they were gone! I did make a small change (so I could have 1 or 2!) Splenda - 1/2 cup and brown sugar 1/4 cup. I also used Honey Roasted Peanut Butter that I ground myself at the local health food store this morning, and 2 tsp of vanilla because I love the flavor! DH just asked if I would please make more cookies later. This is going straight into his "Favorites" cookbook!!! Thanks for another winner Kitt! Made for 1,2,3 Hits!
I can't stop making these. What a easy recipe to make for a bake sale.
