"I got this recipe from a wife of a co-worker. The recipe is called "Peanut Butter Cookies" but they are honestly the best peanut butter cookies that I have ever tasted in my life. I have not made these myself before because my boyfriend isn't crazy about peanut butter cookies so I do not know how much the recipe will make so I am going to give it my best estimated guess. For all of you peanut butter cookie lovers, I really hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I did."

"I increased the quantities and made 10 dozen. This is a wonderful recipe. I went ahead and rolled all the dough into balls and froze. Whenever we need more, I thaw the dough on the pan, then bake. There wasn't a photo available so I added the one at the top."
"Yummy! I had to add a little extra flour but the outcome was exactly as described - soft and chewy. I think I prefer a richer, more peanutty cookie, but these were delicious nonetheless."
"I got 32 cookies of different size (3-4 inches) from this recipe - just covering the 'estimated guess' part. I used dark brown sugar and store-brand peanut butter. I'm not sure why Jiff is called for, as this recipe made an amazingly soft, peanutty-tasting cookie. The only caveat with this is to be really careful if you're going to give any to coworkers or friends/ family: I wrapped a half dozen for someone and ended up with 3 whole cookies, and a LOT of crumbs. They're that soft. Excellent though!"
"Awesome cookies! very soft. i will make these again!"
"These were excellent. BUT, I did use xylitol to make my home made brown sugar. Also, I did not roll the cookies in sugar as xylitol melts and would not Stay grandular like regular sugar. Also , I only use real peanut butter. Other then that I did everything the same. Results, a perfect cookie. If you have not heard of xylitol, research it, you will be surprised there is a sugar out there that is actually good for you! Even for people with diabeties!! This is my all new peanut butter cookie recipe! Thanks so much for the recipe."
"I chose this recipe based on the previous review and the fact that it didn't require more than a stick of butter, since that was all I had left. Very soft texture. Both my kids liked, even my daughter who does not normally like peanut butter cookies! Even though I like my own recipe that has a denser chewy texture, I will make these again, since my kids enjoyed them so. Thanks for getting the recipe from your co-worker! Roxygirl in Colo."
"Great Recipe!! My 14 year old son just came through the house and grabbed one. He came back and said, "I need some milk and a few more cookies before I finish mowing the lawn. These are excellent!!" I agree with his assessment. So glad they made you chef of the day so that I found this recipe."
