  1. Great consistency after baking. Crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle. I would decrease the sugar next time as they were a bit sweet for my taste (& I have a sweet tooth!) I WOULD however make them again, and will be adding them to my list of Christmas cookie arsenal!
  2. Made these 1 Sunday when I didn't feel like going to grocery store for anything to make cookies -- I would have to say this is the best peanut butter cookie we have ever had! Loved them and make them frequently. At the end (after baking) I sprinkle just a smidge of granulated sugar on top. Thanks for posting!
  3. These were great! I added a didn't flatten them out and added a hershey's kiss after they came out of the oven.
  4. My kids love these! Such a quick and easy recipe that I can make with the kids. Thanks for sharing.
  5. I made these for my boyfriend. He loves peanut butter, he's a fanatic! I thought I would try this recipe since it was easy and I am not much of a peanut butter fan but OH MY GOSH these are amazing! Taste great and so easy to make.


  1. I don't usually like PB cookies, and I don't often bake them either, but I promised my 4 year old we'd make cookies, sooo we picked the easiest recipe we could find. (With the stuff I had on hand.) I can't stay out of them, and my other kiddos won't get any at this rate! This was a dry, dense, crumbly, slightly chewy cookie with fantastic PB flavor. I used all natural PB (the kind without corn syrup or sugar added.) I think regular PB would yield a smoother, moister cookie. We doubled the recipe and got about 3 dozen--too many got eaten before I could get an accurate count. :) I subbed 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 splenda for the sugar. I think that's why they turned out a bit chewy. This was a fantastically simple recipe, great to let kids help with--if you can keep them from eating all the dough.


I live in a small town in Georgia. I love to cook and bake, but I don't get to do it very often because of my job. BUT, I love it nonetheless!
