A step is missing from these instructions. Step #7 should be: "Add 1 cup chocolate chips and mix. Reserve the rest for topping the cookie." Flattening with the fork is optional. I switched the chocolate for Heath Toffee Bits. Otherwise, great recipe.

I just pulled my last batch of these out of the oven and I can't stop eating them. I am going to be making another batch I had to post the review first. This is the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. I like that they are so moist and chewy. This is a definate keeper in our house, I will be these often. Thanks so much for posting Anita, it is a great recipe.

Delicious! I just made these to pass some summertime boredom & they are fantastic! I made a quick peanut butter frosting for the middle & made little sandwiches. Dan-ger-ous! Thanks for the great post!
