    They were good. The dough didn't want to drop for me, too dry, so I formed it into balls. The recipe made 2 1/2 doz. that I cooked for exactly 10 minutes.

    I followed the recipe; however, I used Peter Pan Honey Peanut Butter by mistake and they were the best ever.

    These were simply perfect! So nice to find a rich creamy and sweet peanut butter cookie. If you're just looking for sugar pills go elsewhere. I made a double batch of these for a bake sale but I'm going to have to package them quickly if I expect to have any for the sale!

    I have tried about a dozen PB recipes, so I know a good cookie and this wasn't it. I feel bad having wasted the ingredients. It needed more sugar, more vanilla and was too dry. AWFUL.

    I double the recipe and the batter ended up too dry to shape, so I had to add a couple tablespoons of milk. I also cooked at 350, for only 10 minutes. A good peanut buttery cookie.

    These are amazing but they definitely need more peanut butter
    I usually add about 3 tblspns more peanut butter
    and i add a package of chocolate chips
    I roll them into tblspn sized balls and don't mush them down with a fork or anything
    they turn out perfect every time!

    This recipe is awesome! I tried it, only minus the extract and baking powder and plus canna-butter instead lol. They turned out great! Only thing is, the poster put 4 servings, not sure how many cookies they believe is in a serving but I got about 14 jumbo cookies. Thanks very much for the recipe, will use again, with or without the special. butter! ;) oh yeah, i also turn the temp to 350 also like a few others had done, great cookies!

    Just a note for those of you having issues with dryness and the cookie burning or cooking too quickly. Check the expiration date on your flour, baking soda and baking powder. I'm a major baker come Christmas time and bake tons and tons of cookies every year. In 06 the first coupla batches of cookies I made turned out flat, burned easily, or were so dry you nearly choked. A friend suggested checking the expiration dates and sure enough, my baking powder was out of date. Something to think about. I made these cookies today and they were fantastic!

    I used chunky peanut butter and the batter pretty much stayed crumbly the whole time. I think I might go back and add some more butter and try again. The cookies came out fine, albeit crumbly; they taste quite good. Baked for about 8 minutes.

    I was in the mood to make peanut butter cookies and although I have lots of cookbooks, I thought I would try this one since it didn't make a huge batch.
    They came out extremely dry and baked in much less time....and I followed the recipe exactly.
    After the first sheet came out of the oven, I added some oil to the remaining dough and even so,they still came out really really dry.
    I won't make these again!

    The peanut butter cookies were the best I have ever made. I added about 2 or 3 more teaspoons of peanut butter to give it just alittle bit more peanut butter taste. Also if you want a perfect cookie, not to soft not to hard then set oven for 350 for exactly 10 minutes and then let sit for a couple of minutes.

    Don't try to make all the cookies unless you like leftover cookies. I made 10 or 12 and put the rest of the batter in fridge for fresh cookies later.

    Anybody leaving neg feedback did something wrong.

    This is a very good recipe! I baked the cookies a little less time then suggested-7min.They are chewy inside and crispy on outside. I will be adding this recipe to my Christmas cookie collection,
    Thank you.
