The first time I made these, as some others stated, they were a little "blah" but I changed the recipe: I bumped up the peanut butter to a little over a cup and instead of teaspoon of vanilla, I added a tablespoon. Much better!! Only cooked these 8 minutes which leaves them a tad raw and they stay soft, but we are a "tad raw cookie" lovin' family, actually, the dough itself is to die for! These are great with a rolo candy baked inside, too!

These cookies are just so-so. Nothin' to write home about. the dough was easy to work with. The flavor was very mild, too mild for our liking.

I had a craving for some peanut butter cookies and this sounded easy, so I made them. I used buttermilk pancake batter chunky peanutbutter and real vanilla. They turned out awesome!!! I also recommend bakeing them until golden brown which was about 15 minuters.

Delicious! 8 minutes still left them a bit pale and chewy, but my husband preferred those to my second batch (~12 minutes) which were more brown and crispy. I liked the second batch better, so it's all in the preference :) UPDATE: These cookies only get better with age! It is rare that cookies make it past a day or two without getting tossed in my house because they become dry, chewy, etc. but these became softer and even more delicious! Almost a sugar cookie consistency but with peanut butter flavor - yum!

My 3 yr old daughter and i had fun making these today. We stirred 1 cup peanut butter and 1 Tbsp vanilla into the batter. Chilled, then i rolled the balls into sugar and put on the sheet. Then she dipped her fork into sugar & put the criss cross on the top of the cookies. We baked them 7 minutes for soft cookies and 11 for hard cookies. Thank you...... 1/18/2010...We've made these cookies several times. This has become our favorite PB cookie recipe. We prefer soft cookies and these stay soft for days.

These were the best peanut butter cookies I've ever made. I made some with the chocolate and some without. They were great both ways. They were soft and not grainy like some peanut butter cookies can be. I'll definately make these again!
