Top Review by PanNan

This is the perfect classic peanut butter cookie. They were crispy/peanut buttery/buttery - just right. I dipped the fork in sugar instead of flour when making the criss-cross - my preference. The recipe made 36 cookies using 1 1/4 inch balls of dough. It took about 10 - 11 minutes in my oven, and mid-way I turned the cookie sheet since my oven is a little hotter in the back. Hard to beat this recipe.
