I'm not sure why, but mine were definitely not cooked in the 7-8 minutes. I will have to adjust the cooking time in the future to maybe 10-12 minutes, and let them cool a little longer so that they don't fall apart when put to cool. Taste great. Love something other than the typical cut-out cookie taste.
Kept the cookie thickness at 1/8" instead of 1/4" and they were perfectly baked after 7 minutes. Great taste, but could have more of a peanut butter flavor -- resembles a sugar cookie with a hint of peanut butter. Overall a great recipe I would use again!
Ehhh they were alright. I was only able to make 12 cookies with this recipe. When i tried to melt the chocolate and put it in the bag ....well it melted a hole in the bag so i had to put the chocolate with a butter knife. Overall i didnt like the cookies, i could barely taste the peanut butter in them ,they were dry and not thick enough for my taste.
