Top Review by So Cal Gal

These really are yummy cookies! The peanut butter-maple syrup/brown sugar combination is amazingly good; each bite just melts in your mouth. And the sugary criss-crossed tops look so pretty on the holiday cookie platter. This was my first time making peanut butter cookies--and now that I have this recipe, it won't be my last! Thanks for posting, LizCl! (Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y! 2011.)
