"This is a very good peanut butter cookie."
Serving Size: 1 (906 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"A step is missing from these instructions. Step #7 should be: "Add 1 cup chocolate chips and mix. Reserve the rest for topping the cookie." Flattening with the fork is optional. I switched the chocolate for Heath Toffee Bits. Otherwise, great recipe."
"I just pulled my last batch of these out of the oven and I can't stop eating them. I am going to be making another batch I had to post the review first. This is the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. I like that they are so moist and chewy. This is a definate keeper in our house, I will be these often. Thanks so much for posting Anita, it is a great recipe."
"Delicious! I just made these to pass some summertime boredom & they are fantastic! I made a quick peanut butter frosting for the middle & made little sandwiches. Dan-ger-ous! Thanks for the great post!"
"Yes, this is a good peanut butter cookie recipe. They are what they say - moist & chewy. I will not cook with vegetable oil such as crisco. I substitute extra light olive oil or real unsalted butter. For my first try using this recipe I substituted extra light olive oil for the crisco. I used dark brown sugar. For the peanut butter I use the all natural peanut butter kind (read the labels folks - just peanuts and salt, that's all I want.) When I make them again - and I will - I will cut back on the salt, probably take it to barely 1/2 teaspoon. Thank you ; )"
"I actually created an account just now after baking these cookies just to say how fantastic they are! Quick, easy, and most of all, DELICIOUS!"
"I %u2665 the idea for chocolate chips...peanut butter & chocolate...Yum-O!"
"These cookies are very moist, chewy and extremely irresistible. You will not regret making these...but maybe the scale will. haha. So good!!"
"Wonderful!!! My husband loves peanut butter cookies. Even more so chewy peanut butter cookies. I always make PBC's like my mother always made them and they always got really crunchy once they cooled. Sorry mom, I'll only make these from now on."
"Awesome! I left out the chocolate chips because I'm one of those odd balls that don't like chocolate. But I added real peanuts and left the rest the same. YUMMY! And soft and chewy. The best peanut butter cookies I've ever made! Thanks for posting Anita!"
"My kids and I made these cookies together, the recipes was quick and easy to follow, we used peanut butter chips and cut up peanuts to make them peerfect. Also of course the cookie texture was great!"
"Finally, A decent peanut butter cookie...thank you!!"
"This recipe was great!! My family loved them. I added a dash of cinnamon and a teaspoon of honey and 2 handfuls of peanuts instead of chocolate chips. They turned out decadant!!"
"addicting! watch out."
"Yummy - yummy - yummy! These ARE super gooey and chewy. I used organic, all natural peanut butter, all whole wheat flour and a trans fat free, organic shortening. I also only added 1 cup of brown sugar. For me, these were VERY sweet - even with the reduction of sugar. Next time I will only add half of the amount called for."
"A perfect moist and chewy cookie! They mix up in a snap and taste great. We did need to bake a little longer. If you don't bake long enough the cookies are so soft that they will break apart when you pick them up. They stay nice and soft, even the second day (they don't last any longer than that in my house!)"
"we cannot get enough of these cookies... we love how they come out soft & chewy...we do omit the chocolate chips ..however at the holidays & other occasions i have to make a really & i mean realy big batch of these caue they disappear & some family take some home..thanks for sharing the recipe"
"These cookies are so yummy!! Super fast and esay to whip up to! I dont like semi sweet chocolate chips to much so I omitted them and used medium sized milk chocolate chips, I placed one on top of a few cookies and they were really good also. Thanks so much for a great recipe, I'll definately make these again and again!"
"Wonderful cookies. They were oh so chewy!! I don't like hard and crunchy cookies, so these are great! My hubby loved them too. They could have been cooked a few minutes longer for my liking, but they were good as is. :)"
"All I can say is yum yum! Excellent cookies. I substitued margarine for the crisco and added 1/2 cup of oatmeal. For a change I tried using vanilla chips this time. They are so good. I also baked them for 9 minutes. You are right, they are moist & chewy irresistible peanut butter cookies. Thanks"
