I made these cookies today, then only change I made was to add some peanut butter chips to them. They turned out perfect. The recipe ended up making 35 cookies, and I'm sure they will be gone by tomorrow! :)
Thanks for posting

My 8yo granddaughter and I made these together and had such a good time. They were easy to make and taste wonderful! Careful, though...they're very addicting.

These cookies were inexpensive, easy, and just delicious--exactly what I look for in a recipe! These taste just like my mom used to make when I was a little girl. Yes, they're -that- good! I would recommend softening the butter before trying to stir it in; had I done so, it would have saved me some time! In my oven, I bake these for only 8 minutes. They come out crispy, chewy, and perfect.

This is the cookie recipe that I have been using for years aside from mine uses 1&1/2 cups of flour which I really recommend. With 1& 1/4 the dough is way too sticky to roll into balls. Aside from that, I LOVE these cookies! Always make them for the holidays

Let's give credit where credit is due! This is the recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook that I received in 1977 and is the best ever peanut butter cookie recipe!!

I'm new to this website and this is the first recipe I've tried. I made these cookies last night and so far I've eaten 11 of them; my husband ate 3 so far.....This is the recipe that my grandmother and I made when I was a little girl. Good memories and good cookies. I added chocolate chips to half of the batter, but the ones without the chips are better. Thank you for submitting this recipe.

Very good cookies! And a teaspoon on the cookie sheet is definitely enough to make a good sized cookie. I followed the directions exactly and these made about 2 dozen large ones. Will make these again and again! Thanks so much for a very tasteful recipe!

Just baked these today and they turned out really well! I was tempted not to sift the flour because I hate that thing, but I did it and if it helped the cookies in anyway...so be it because they are awesome! I used chunky PB and used more vanilla than called for and even a little almond extract too. My gf who asked that I make her PB cookies cannot stop eating them and I have had at least 3 since I finished baking them all!! Thanks for sharing.
