    Flavor was good, but they were too dry. I would alter it next time. Also, I added two milk chocolate chips on top for flare and chocolate goodness.

    they turned into cupcakes because of the amount of flour that is used, but apartment from that, no complaints really!

    These turned out super well! My only gripe is that they didn’t taste as peanutty as I wanted.

    The texture was great (not too soft or bendy), and I would definitely make this again

    Amazing 😊 I had to add a bit more flour, but this may be because I was using extra creamy peanut butter.

    These are very good. I went a little easy on the white sugar and doubled the amount of salt (and used half table salt, half kosher salt). I was able to get the criss cross pattern. I wouldn’t call these chewy, more soft and a little crumbly, though maybe they’ll be chewier when stale. If you’re just looking for a delicious standard PB cookie, this is a good one!

    Amazing. I cooked mine for 15 minutes. They were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I put two pans in at a time because I like mine extra crispy. The top tray was absolutely more crunchy! I could not get them to criss cross like usual peanut butter cookies, so I kind of just smooshed them down! Very Yummy and easy to make!

    Turned out great! I made more than the recipe’s expected 20 cookies. Also used a bit more salt than recommended, and sprinkled the leftover sugar over the cookies before baking. My Lovely Wife said, “ I hate you. These are perfect.” LoL

    They were good they could be left i there probably for 15 min I did for 12 and were a little under cooked

    Not super sweet, which is great. I substituted 1 c flour with 1/3 c coconut flour and used Jif pb. Probably could have added more salt and peanutbutter to give it a stronger flavor. I've definitely had better peanutbutter cookies but this wasn't too bad.

    Ehh. They were good. But very very dry and needed more peanut butter flavor. I added more peanut butter and milk to my second batch to make them a little more moist.

    Easy but slightly too sweet. I would definitely reduce the sugar. Texture is perfect. The chopped hazelnuts I added fit great as well!

    great, wish they were not as crunchy and more chewy, I'll tweak it next time.

    Made them with crunchy peanut butter and added chocolate chips, also didn't do the sugar coating. Turned out amazing! The family loves them. Next time I would add less sugar and use dark chocolate chips as they are quite sweet. But overall they are soo delicious 🤤

    I do not suggest adding the sugar coating at the end because there is more than enough sugar. I did not use all of the butter that I was told to, and the cookies still came out good. This is a great, relatively quick baking recipe. Thanks!
