Love these! I made up a batch of dough and cooked half, then made the other half a couple days later. They are perfect in my opinion. Soft, but still have a bit of a crispy outside. They are SOOO delicious! Thanks for sharing!

Taste great! I did one batch with crunchy peanut butter and one with smooth, I don't which one I LOVE better. Then only complaint I have is that I wish they wouldn't have spread so much so they could be a little bit thicker.
