    I don't even like PB cookies, but my husband does. These are good, though. I followed recipe exactly, and I usually don't make anything that calls for more than 1/2 cup butter. But, they're for my hubby. They turned out very nice. I baked one sheet at a time for 15 minutes. Not a huge PB taste in the cookies, but they have a very nice texture. I used smooth PB. I made 83 cookies. Easy to make, a little time consuming because it made so many.

    I made this recipe and after reading the other review she said there wasn't much of a pb taste so i improvised. Instead of putting only a cup of pb i put in the whole 16 oz. jar of pb. The cookies came out incredible they were soft and had a great texture and they were very peanut buttery. i got lots of compliments

    Recipe makes a good peanut butter cookie. I made the recipe exactly as written. The baking instructions seemed off though - I made 1" balls and then pressed with a fork and baked at 350 for 9min for a soft cookie that was not doughy. Any longer and they become very crunchy.

    I made these as a treat for my birthday. I was told these are the best cookies I ever made...and I've made TONS! They are super tasty!! They don't have a very strong peanut butter taste, so no one could tell what these really were. I bakes in batches of 12 minutes each, but I did make my cookies smaller to get more quantity. They came out crispy, but that's why everyone loved them.

    This is not really a review, but I will try it sometime. It looks to have a lot of ingredients. I would like for you to try what I call my Mothers All-Time Famous Peanut Butter Cookies. Only 3 Ingredients. 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar and 1 large egg. Mix together form in balls cross with a fork. Bake 350 until lightly brown. They will darken some when they are cool. Don't over bake or they will be crispy. I like them done but a little soft when cool. I had told a stranger at the grocery how to make them, a year later I saw the man again and he ask if I was not the lady that told him how to make peanut butter cookies, I said "probably." He then tried to tell me that it was wrong, it should be 2 peanut butter,2 sugar and 2 eggs. He said he could eat the whole recipe and if he wanted to share he had to make another batch. It is so easy to be so good.

    I only like peanut butter in a cookie and these are a good recipe. I did do alittle extra take on this and added 4 oz of cream cheese in with the butter and sugars and they turned out excellent but do only cook them for about 9 to 10 minutes.

    Wow, great easy recipe! We halved it and out of laziness used only brown sugar. Just the right texture.

    What ? Nothing special ? Have had better ? I just can't imagine that. These are the most classic of recipes. It's been years since I've made PB cookies and this recipe is just perfect. So easy - buttery, airy, crisp and bake up beautifuly ! Emily Rose, please share your "have had better" recipe ! I need to compare for myself.

    I hadn't made peanut butter cookies in years! But I just made this recipe n used Smart n Final's First Street chunky peanut butter and they were the best ever!! I baked them only 10 min. 12 for a little crispier. Thank you for the great recipe!!

    To Betty Hanner - thanks SO MUCH for your simple 3-ingredient recipe. I am salt-free and this fills the bill perfectly with Trader Joe's unsalted peanut butter. I think I might try it with half brown sugar and half white. The recipe shown in the website will be fine with the salt left out and low sodium baking powder/soda. But Betty's is so simple I think I will try it first.

    Awesome! I followed some of the suggestions by doubling the amount of peanut butter, adding some cinnamon, using margarine instead of butter and cooking for 9-10 min. We tried them just as peanut butter cookies and they were deemed excellent. Then I added some chocolate chips, they tasted more like a chocolate chip cookie and over powered the peanut butter flavor. I then took some of the plain dough and added only 2 chips to each cookie and that was nice. You could taste the peanut butter flavor but then were surprised with a little chocolate in a couple of bites. This a keeper as its very easy to make.
