Skippy Quick Cookies

"I found this in a magazine and it sounded so simple, I had to try it. I'm glad I did. It is the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe I've ever tried and it's delicious. I made one batch and thought they were so good, I made another batch today. Children could make these cookies."

    I am looking for a peanut butter cookie with a shortbread-like quality. Crumbly and peanut-buttery. Any suggestions?

    They aren't as big of a cookie that you get using flour. Using flour you get more cookies out of a batch of dough. These taste good though

    I give these a 5 star for what they are....quick, easy, made with minimal ingredients and quite tasty....now would I chose these over my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe? Probably not, but....it was just what I needed....something fast for tomorrows lunches.....I will definitely keep this on hand when I need to make cookies quickly! Thanks for sharing!!

    A good cookie. It is a little grainy- but mine turned out soft. While these were easy to make, and tasted good, I think I might stick with PB cookies that use flour. But this would be a great one for a beginning kid chef.

    A strange gritty consistency that I wasn't expecting, and they also got much harder than I was expecting. Tasted great though.

    I made a recipe from another 'Zaar member that is very similar to this except theirs did not use vanilla. That was the missing ingredient between a 4 star and a 5 star recipe! Fabulous. This recipe made a bit over 4 dozen cookies using a 2 tsp cookie dropper. I served these to 18 teenagers and came home with only 8 cookies left! They are a hit!
