Reese's Original Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

"These are not P.B. cookies with choc. chips, or chocolate cookies with P.B. chips. These are the original Reese's P.B. chip cookies that they used to print on the back of the bag. They don't print this recipe anymore, but it has been my favorite since childhood. They are a traditional cookie with P.B. chips...Delicious! A great alternative to choc. chip cookies for those who don't like chocolate or want something different."

    Quick this a high altitude recipe? I'm asking because 1st batch 2/3's of dough came out flat. When I added 1/4 C more flour to the remaining 1/3 batch. They still flat just not as flat. I used butter as instructed. Here's a pic of the 2 batches, side by side. The batch on right is 1st, on left is 2nd

    First off I would like to start by saying, I do not bake! I printed this recipe off a few days ago and decided to try it out this afternoon. These cookies are perfect with the recipe as stated. No changes are needed. It's a great spin on the traditional peanut butter cookie. If you like a softer cookie, bake to a lighter brown color. They are so delicious!

    I like these much better with the chips rather than a cookie made with peanut butter. The cookies are very light, I almost overcooked them because I thought they weren't done yet! Very good!

    I had to use shortening like it suggested, because I ran out of butter the night before, but I followed the recipe otherwise. It was easy to make and the clean-up was minimal. I did 10 minutes at first but 12 is much better. I must say they were so soft and delicious!! I instantly saved the recipe after the first cookie. A must if you love peanut butter cookies!!

    This recipe is phenomenal. I didnt add salt, although I wondered if it was missing. It's not, because the Reeses PB Chips are plenty savory enough. Also, I ran out of regular white flour and had to use 3/4 a cup of coconut flour and it turned out great anyway! About half way through baking I smashed them down because they still looked like ball cookies. They ended up a little ugly, but they are delicious!
