Top Review by Gamer Gal

i actually didn't get the recipe from here i found it in an old Betty crocker magazine, i was going to post it if no one else had but i'm surprised to see its up here with no reviews!!! i made them for my dad for fathers day and they were WONDERFUL! and surprisingly simple! the only advice i have is you might want to add an extra egg or a bit more peanut butter if the dough turns out a bit dry (as it did for me when i fallowed the recipe) and two it may take a bit longer in the oven, took mine about 11 or 12 minutes. other then that they are perfect! a great gift for any one! ^_^
