OK, I've made this recipe before and followed it exactly, and for me, the cookies were great. However, I wanted PB cookies today and had no butter… Sub'd in shortening, plus 3T water, and also added a bit of extra flour after reading reviews. That's probably great when you use butter, but shortening is OMG NOOOO!!! My dough was crumbly as heck, so I added some more PB, some more water, and a bit of veg oil until it was wet enough to at least make a ball. It's still really dry, and the cookies I baked (only one batch so far) are really pale. I haven't tasted them yet, but I envision a crumbly mess! Probably make this recipe with butter… :)
