So easy. My 6 year old helped me make these with ease. We only had white chocolate chips but next time I will definately use dark chocolate. Great recipe.

They are very yummy and I made them as is written. Next time I think I will cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugar first. Then add the eggs, corn syrup, vanilla, and baking soda, and so on. This just seems more logical since mixing the thick peanut butter and butter into the liquidy eggs was a bit awkward.

Very easy and incredibly tasty. I used Splenda to reduce the sugar and now the cookies are a new favorite.

These cookies are delicious! I am on a gluten-free diet, so I was thrilled to discover such easy-to-make, mouth-watering cookies that don't require flour.

These are so delicious, been looking for an oatmeal cookie-type recipe with choc chips and no raisins. Didn't have semisweet choc so used half milk choc and half dark choc. Also, I only put 6 on a tray rather than the usual 12 as they do spread (like cow pies do!) Had to cook for about 11 1/2 minutes.

My family enjoys these cookies very much. I didn't change anything in the recipe. They are moist and chewy, with a delightful melding of flavors from the peanut butter, chocolate, oats, and brown sugar. They are awesome right out of the oven. I also experimented with adding a little unsweetened cocoa powder and a bit of extra sugar so that the color looked more like "authentic" cow pies. My 11 year-old got a kick out of that.

I made this recipe for the 1st time yesterday. My husband declared these his "favorite, a man's cookie. It has everything in it we like". For him to say that means a lot! The only thing I changed is I put 4c of oats and 1/2c ground flax seed. I used crunchy peanut butter, the only kind in our house. They're great warm from the oven or pop a cooled one in the microwave...with a glass of milk. Yum!
