The perfect peanut butter cookie! I love soft cookies, any kind, as long as it is soft with a little bit of chewiness. These cookies are soft and delicious. As the name says everyone who had one loved them. I did cut the frosting recipe in half and still had a bit leftover. The frosting is very sweet so not much is needed. My new go-to peanut butter cookie recipe, we will have these again.
These are good cookies; very soft & peanut buttery. I used a cookie scoop to portion onto parchment paper & found I preferred the cookies a little larger than the teaspoon size recommended. Next time I will also decrease the icing amounts as I had quite a bit left over. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I will be using it again!. Made for Spring Pick A Chef 2010.
These are the best peanut butter cookies EVER! I couldn't stop getting compliments about them at work and when I made them for my family, they were gone in a day. The cookies are so soft and the peanut butter frosting give an extra burst of peanut buttery goodness. Definitely a must keep recipe!
