OMG.. GREAT COOKIE.Im not a big peanut butter lover but these were outstanding.. I dont know what some of you were doing wrong but mine came out perfect, i did use 2 1/2 cups of flour, a whole 16 oz jar of crunchy peanut butter and a half teaspoon of baking powder. They baked for 18 minutes exact. I got almost 5 dozen out of the recipe and they were very chewy and thick. the family loved em. I will never make another peanut butter cookie recipe, This is my go to recipe.

This is a really good, chewy cookie recipe. The 18 minutes baking time was perfect for my oven too! I made these one night, then sandwiched some homemade ice cream between two cookies, wrapped in plastic wrap and refroze. Delicious! Can't wait to have another. Thanks for a great recipe!
