    Exactly as advertised - soft, chewy and delicious. After trying so many recipes for peanut butter cookies, this one is my go-to. Good just as is, but I ususally add chocolate and/or white chocolate chips.

    Wonderfully peanut buttery! I added Reese’s candies as an added bonus! Delish!
    Wonderful- I used partial chunky peanut butter for some crunch. Cookies came out soft and delicious. Baked for between 11-12 minutes

    So good and easy! I always use crunchy peanut butter for more texture and peanutty pop

    They were great! Really don’t overtake them, leave them on the cookie sheet while cooking for the three minutes specified and they remain chewy but cooked through after they are done cooling. My whole family ate them all (as well as me).

    This recipe was PERFECT! I made a quadruple batch I began by making half of the dough in the traditional peanut butter cookies I rolled those in sugar as directed. They were baked for 10 minutes, allowed to set for 5, then transferred to a cooling rack I added a variation of candy pieces to the remaining dough for different types of cookies Perfect firm cookie exterior and soft gooey center
    Delicious! This is my go to PB Cookie recipe now! I did do a light forking and they turned out amazing! Just as advertised, soft and chewy!

    t=The cookies were delicious. I will definitely make them again. The only problem was that the pictures didn't show the chef flattening the cookies and the final picture didn't look like fork flattened cookies. When they came out of the oven they were cookie balls. I suggest flattening them with a fork like usual.

    These were perfect! Not too sweet, not too peanut-buttery, and very soft and chewy. I used 1/2 regular and 1/2 chunky peanut butter, but followed everything else exactly. Yum!

    We added half cup baking chocolate (no chips) and they turned out like chocolate peanut butter cup cookies! Lotsa of peanut butter flavor! Family approved. I would do this again! Perfect!

    The cookies flake apart too easily. I had a difficult time picking them up with spatula. First batch was a little sweet, so I only put sugar on the top for next batches. DELICIOUS, though!

    These were good...but in my opinion not great. I will keep looking for a favorite peanut butter cookie recipe.

    Excellent!!! Did not modify except for crunchy peanut butter. Made a double batch because they go so fast. Actually just used raw brown sugar on the top only also.

    Turned out perfect! Next time, I’ll skip rolling the cookie in the sugar. I thought it was good, but my family thought it was too sweet.

    they came out to be rather dry & cakey cookies, which was disappointing. followed the recipe exactly, but i prefer a richer, chewier cookie
