  1. These turned out really yummy. I only had to mix them for the first 2 minutes using the stand mixer. The dough is really easy to work with and I didn't even need the sugar to make the crosses with. They are very soft after 8 minutes, but that yields the perfect chewy cookie. They taste a bit like peanut butter brownies.
  2. These were good! It took awhile to mix it well but was easy tp form into balls. Baking them right and the kids are drooling! LOL They smell WONDERFUL! They look great and the dough taste great ~ thanks for the recipe!
  3. i had these at church and she used 2 eggs and 2/3 cup peanut butter they were the hit of the social she also used chocolate mocha frosting try that its great thanks for posting dee
  4. I had to add a little water to make the dough stick together, greased the pan because there isn't really any oil in the recipe,and cooked them 10 minutes instead of 8, but they are yummy and easy! I used my cookie ball maker from Pampered Chef and it made 22 cookies.


<p>I live in Pa (outside of Philadelphia) and cooking, baking, cross-stitching and reading are my hobbies. <br /> <br />I collect cookbooks and cookie stamps/cutters and have a pretty big collection of both. I am also a fan of all things Amish, so I have quite a collection of things picked up in Reading, Lancaster and surrounding areas here in Pennsylvania. <br /> <br />I have 4 kids, who are the loves of my life and cooking for them and my husband keeps me on my toes! ;) <br /> <br />We bought an ice cream parlor in March 04 and it's been quite an experience! <br /> <br />Note: I love getting feedback on my recipes; all I ask is that you actually *make* them before reviewing them. <br /> <br />Also, if you make changes or substitutions, I'd love to see your suggestions and/or comments, but I'd appreciate no rating at all if it's not made as posted. Too many recipe reviews state margarine subbed for butter (if I list butter, it's REAL butter), different spices, low-fat ingredients, whole wheat flour instead of white, etc. The recipes will not work/taste as intended, so it's really not fair to rate them as such. <br /> <br />I'd also really appreciate it if you refrain from rating a recipe if you overcook or overbake it or it you don't refrigerate or store as listed. <br /> <br />I, of course, will adhere to the above when rating recipes, too! <br /> <br />Thanks and have a great day! <br /> <br />My Rating System: <br /> <br />***** A delicious recipe that was thoroughly enjoyed. It has excellent, detailed directions and is perfect as is. If a dish is especially easy, and I'm on the fence, I will give it 5* for ease even if it's very good instead of great. Something I will definitely make again. <br /> <br />**** Excellent recipe but confusing directions that I will make again in my own less confusing way OR Very good recipe that I'll probably make again if I find the time! <br /> <br />*** Good/OK recipe but probably not something I would make again OR Very Good recipe that doesn't have clear, detailed directions. <br /> <br />** Recipe was edible but not really enjoyed and will not be made again. Work involved not a good trade-off for the end result. <br /> <br />* Not edible and probably an error in the recipe. I feel that I pick recipes with ingredients our family likes, so in my opinion, there's an error somewhere. If there's a chance I made the error, I won't rate the recipe. ;) <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=;current=cookieswapparticip.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=;current=09holidayparticipationbanner.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
