These certainly were "Perfect" peanut butter cookies! I didn't change a thing when I made these, and baked them for the 7 1/2 minutes you recommended. They were great! I'm glad you mentioned that they may not look "done" when they come out of the oven, or I would have probably stuck them back in for another few minutes! I ended up with a perfect chewy peanut butter cookie.. just the way my DH likes them! Thanks for another great recipe, Lennie!
I accidentally used 2 sticks of butter the first time I made these, and my family was wild about them! They were unbelievably good! Made them a second time using 1 stick of butter, and they were ok. Made them a 3rd time with the second stick of butter and again the family raved about them! I definitely recommend trying 2 sticks of butter, and otherwise following the recipe exactly. YUM!
Fab recipe, Lennie! I generally do not bake, but I used your cookie dough to go with Bethany's great Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies to give as holiday gifts. They were awesome, many thanks!
I made these cookies and the kids loved them, but I thought they were just not quite sweet enough and a little too cakey. I prefer sweet, chewey peanut butter cookies.
I made this recipe today, and I was disappointed. They have more of a cake like consistancy. I prefer the chewy type peanut butter cookies.
I chose this recipe because it used a whole cup of peanut butter. I also liked the fact that it only used 1/2 c butter. Of course, then when I went to put in the pb, I didn't have a whole cup of smooth, so I had to use some chunky. I thought the cookies were really yummy. The recipe only made about 30 sm-med cookies. I would agree that the texture was crumbly, but the taste was very good. I was looking for something more of the cookie you get when you make Peanut Blossoms.
The cookies tasted good, but the texture was off. They were light and crumbly, instead of chewy or firm. Also I calculated the Calories and it came out to 192 per cookie, not 80, and I used a 1/8 cup measuring cup to dish them out, so they are already bite-size. I want to eat more but I am afraid of gaining weight.
My family thought these were just "okay". I don't like peanut butter cookies so I didn't try them for myself. They were quite easy to make though and were done after 7 minutes. I made half of them plain and half of them with chocolate chips. DBF gave them 4 stars and my parents gave them 3 stars so I'd really like to rate this 3.5.
Perfect. 7.5 minutes; perfect. Lennie, I love your baked goods, thanks so much for posting.
This is a really good cookie.Everyone in the house loved it and my husband said to me while shoving in a fist full of peanut butter cookies (you need to make some more of these) The only reason I gave it a 4 stars is because my first batch was a bit dry and I could taste the salt so in my next several batches I did not add any salt and added a half cup more peanut butter and they turned out great!!!I will use this now as my cookie recipe.Thanks.
