    Delicious! These are my family's favorite, I'm on keto so I switched out the sugar for swerve sugar and it tastes exactly the same and still just as amazing.

    Let me tell ya, instead of peanut butter I used cashew butter. So yummy. Just be sure to cook about 12-15 mins instead of the 8-10. Also make sure they are completely cooled before taking them from cookie sheet. They turn into a glooby mess. Other than that , these are phenomenal. Next time with almond butter.

    They were good, but we couldn’t stick to the recipe. We had to add 1/2 cup of flower because they were just liquid. I don’t know how other people had so much begged luck

    Very good! Used parchment paper. Crisp and maybe a bit too sweet but I bet my hubby will love them.

    I feel like something is missing from this recipe, the consistency didn’t seem right to roll and fork. Should there not be flour?

    Delicious! Easy enough to make that my daughter took over and did all the work. They taste like what I remember my mom making back in the day. A nice, vintage recipe.

    They had great Peanut Butter taste but I had to add a little butter so they stick together a little better. Overall very yummy!

    I have made these a couples times according to the directions. They were always delicious! Tonight I used reduced fat peanut butter and added a scoop of chocolate protein powder. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but they actually were delicious! Next time I am going to reduce the sugar a bit, because I agree with others, they are a bit on the sweet side.
