Wow - the name of this recipe says it all and I'll have to agree 100%! These are melt in your mouth delicious. I make cookies for a local food pantry twice a month. This recipe is great for that because it makes a lot of cookies (enough to take to the food pantry and enough for my family to snack on). I'm not even a big PB cookie lover, but these are to die for! Thanks for the newspaper tip as well...worked perfectly! I followed the recipe exactly except I only baked the cookies for 12-13 minutes. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! Kristen

These turned out absolutely perfect. I added small package of chopped pecans. I chilled the dough as directed and rolled 1 tablespoon balls and kept them chilled until they were ready for the cookie sheet. FYI Following the recipe amounts and using tablespoon size balls this made 71 cookies. Thanks so much for this recipe.

This is my "go to" recipe for PB Cookies now. I like that I can freeze them before baking. This year I used them in a cookie exchange and gave frozen dough balls so the recipients could bake fresh when they had depleted their other sweets. I also like frozen dough better than frozen cookies because it takes a little effort to snitch a cookie and I'm less likely to indulge if it takes more effort.

Very good cookies. I made the by the tablespoonful so they were a little bigger (added 2-3 minutes to the baking time). Also made the dough the day before, refrigerated and it was ready to go when I wanted. A big hit at out company bake sale!

I used a third of the recipe and that STILL makes lots of cookies. It's all there: flavor and texture are perfect. The easiest, yummiest cookies I've ever made. Thanks for the newspaper tip, really effective!

This really is THE best Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. I will never use another again. Perfect combo of chewy inside/crispy outside. I used creamy peanut butter and no nuts but did use the peanut butter chips. Can't be beat!

Followed the instructions exactly but the cookies turned out not as great as everyone says.
When I was adding baking powder and then baking soda, I suspected that it's going to be to much to add both, so they really have same ingredients, but I still added them, as it was said in the recipe. And when the cookies were baked and I tried them it turns out that you can really taste the baking soda/powder! So adding less baking powder/soda would work out much better and the cookies would turn out much tastier and more chewy.

These really were delicious, and I stress were. They came out of the oven and are already all gone. I did change the recipe servings to 15 cookies and the changes were right on. My husband who is extemely picky about cookies said these are really, really good. I used natural peanut butter, too.

Best ever! I love the crispy outside and chewy inside. I baked and then froze for a party and they were perfect!

These are bakery good!!! I didn't have peanut butter chips, and really didn't want to go to the store so I used chocolate chips. I cut the recipe in half because I didn't have enough of everything on hand to keep the full recipe. These are fantastic!! I can't wait to try them with PB chips!!
