Really great peanut butter cookies! I baked mine on my air-convection oven for 8 minutes, and they turned out just the perfect texture, more on the crispy side, just the way I prefer my PB cookies. I made exactly as stated with no changes, but I divided the cookie dough in half and added some tiny chocolate chips to one half, my son's fiance is a chocoholic LOL!. Thank you Lvs2cook, I will make these again soon!...Kittencal:)

I make a recipe almost exactly like this - the only difference is I use 1 cup of margarine, instead of 1/2 cup butter, and 1/2 cup shortening. The result is fantastic, in fact I made some today and they are almost all gone. This is a great recipe.
