    Hi 15 days ago
    These are greatly appreciated, my partner loves them and so do I. The only change I made was I used coconut oil, and butter! Half of them I might give away lol!

    It was delicious! But I had a hard time getting the bottom not to burn! All of them looked a bit brown on the bottom. If you don’t put sugar on the bottom of the cookie, it doesn’t burn as bad.

    Love it! I added nuts, but I think to many nuts. It was hard to keep the ball in shape. Delicious anyway.

    I made these tonight and the whole family loved them. I did not have a mixer and easily mixed all ingredients by hand using a spatula and came out sensational.

    These are very good! They aren’t the traditional type of peanut butter cookies but more like a peanut butter sugar cookie.

    This recipe is the truth. Cookies came out just right, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

    I didn’t have brown sugar, but google said you can use white sugar instead. It said to expect your cookies to turn out crisper than if you had brown sugar, but they were still so soft and absolutely perfect! I’m excited to make them again using brown sugar!!!
