I am no baker but these were perfect! Made exactly as written. Loved the idea of dipping the fork in sugar before crossing. Baked on parchment paper. Topped them off with Kisses.

These were yummy! Keep a close eye on them while baking, different sheets from the same batch cooked at much different rates. We made 3 batches, and got about 3 1/2 dozen per batch. Thanks for posting!

Like the original poster of this recipe, I've also been making these since I was a little girl back in the 50's. This recipe comes straight out of the Betty Crocker Cookie book, page 24. I wanted to make Peanut Butter cookies today but thought I'd do some research on Zaar; found loads of recipes but too many comments about cookies "not baking in correct time, too doughy, etc." I was also interested in a recipe that did NOT require chilling!! So, I went back to this time tested recipe, much to my family's delight. I've made these two way: with the sugar-coated crisscross done with a fork and also as Thumbprint Cookies filled with Grape Jelly when they cool. Either way, they are perfect for this early Autumn weather we're experiencing. Five Stars, for sure!

I just made these cookies; and they are fabulous!!! and very easy to make - if you love Peanut Butter cookies, this recipe is a must try. I made 2 batches, the first batch I followed the recipe, the second batch I processed/chopped about a cup of chocolate covered peanuts, I added the crushed chocolate covered peanuts to the mixture and then rolled them into a ball, floured them, and pressed them with a fork... so good! This would be a great recipe to make with children, it is so easy and so fast to make. I hope you try them. Cheers, Sharon

I have to double the recipe to keep them for more than 2 days. I add a cup of coarsly chopped salted peanuts for a single batch. I eat them by the plate-full with milk. This is just short of peanut heaven.

Very delicious! I added 1/4 cup more flour and refrigerated the dough a while before baking, as I live in a warm Texas climate. Thanks for the great recipe! I'll definitely make this again!

These cookies are very, very, very, very yummy. Maybe that's because I love PB, but really the taste and texture were just perfect. And I really liked the touch of dipping the fork in sugar before pressing down. It made them a bit sparkly and fancy enough to be given away as Christmas cookies. They were gobbled up within a day by family and friends. Thanks a bunch for another hit.

I made up a half batch of these yummy cookies, and added vietnamese cinnamon and sugar to dip my fork in, and sprinkled some over as they came out of the oven....mmmmm. Baked for 11 minutes - too long! I say just great at 10!

This is an excellent recipe for easy and delicious peanut butter cookies. I had all the ingredients on hand and I followed the recipe exactly except I added about a 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips. My husband said they reminded him of what his mom used to make when he was little. This will become a favorite in my house.
