These are really amazing. My whole family enjoyed them and no one can believe they only have 3 ingredients! Be sure to flatten them far enough or the middles will not cook through.

these are the same pb cookies that i have grown up on - the only difference is that my mom has always used brown sugar in them instead of granulated. i think it adds a lot to the flavor, so give it a try. these cookies are also very good topped with hershey's kisses right out of the oven.

Cookies without flour! I'd looked and looked at this recipe, and decided Recipezaar Day (Feb.10/02) was the time to try it. I'm pleased to report that this recipe really does work -- you get cookies! Good cookies! I really liked them; they're sweet and have a strong peanut butter taste. Extremely easy to make! The only thing I did differently was chill the dough for 15 minutes before making them. Oh, and my yield was 24 cookies, making the fat and calorie count a little lower than listed here :-)
