    Very easy and tasty. Going to try a double batch next time. Seems like this would be a great thumbprint recipe.

    Fantastic for four ingredients. I would like them a little less sweet so next time I will use all natural peanut butter with no sugar. I had a jar of Jiff I needed to get rid of. They hold shape really well so you could also make a well and add jelly or chocolate. Would be awesome. I may try some dark chocolate the next time I make them.

    Baked them for a total of 16 minutes and they came out perfect. Can’t believe there’s no flour n them.

    My boyfriend loves these cookies! He told me they were the best peanut butter cookies he ever had. I baked 11 minutes and used creamy peanut butter, but the center is soft and almost gooey. My dog is going crazy too!

    Yummy!!! Very easy and quick to make. I used calorie-free sugar instead of regular powdered sugar to make it keto-friendly.

    Too rich for me, but I'm not one to eat a spoonful of peanut butter for that reason. Most of the cookies fell apart even though I baked them just a little longer.

    Super easy to make and really yummy! I used crunchy peanut butter and regular sugar but it still turned out really well. The crunch was actually pretty good. Good luck to all who make this!

    This is the easiest,quickest recipe I have ever tried. I love baking but sometimes it is time consuming baking from scratch. Not so with this recipe! I tripled the amounts to make a large batch and they were perfect. Great for anytime you want a quick snack for the grandkids.

    I've made these several times now, and found them a favorite go-to quickie dessert. They are so easy to make, and I can pop them in the oven in minutes. The first time I made them, I used a scoop, but didn't flatten them much. The centers didn't cook. Now I press the balls with a fork, making the traditional p'nut butter cross pattern. Be careful not to over bake, or they'll want to crumble.
