I had high hopes for this recipe. I did substitute butter for margarine (margarine tastes like mayonnaise to me), added 1/2 tsp vanilla, and cut back the salt to 1/2 tsp (I was using a homemade peanut butter that was made with salted peanuts). These cookies are really, as one reviewer said, more of a sugar cookie than a peanut butter cookie- the sugar is more prominent than anything else. After sitting and cooling, the initial greasiness goes away, and you do get a chewy cookie. I think, with less sugar and maybe a little more flour, you could have a stellar cookie. These are certainly edible, but I'm going to keep searching for the perfect chewy peanut butter cookie.
