This is the best PB recipe I have ever used. I used just regular peanut butter and regular choc. chips. Which worked out perfectly! You will see that the cookies will turn out chewy and tastful!

I was not happy with these at all. The dough was soft so I already had concerns, but given the mixed reviews I chose to plod on and follow the recipe with no changes other than to chill the dough overnight. The result was a cookie that was so soft it had little structure to support it once it was picked up - as others experienced, it fell apart into pieces, pieces that were too fatty and not sweet enough. I compared this recipe to a similar recipe I loved, with a 2:1 ratio of peanut butter to butter - and what I found explains what went wrong with this recipe. It needs 2 T. more of both brown sugar and white sugar, which explains why these cookies were not sweet enough. The recipe needs more flour, maybe 1/4 cup, which explains why they were too fatty (I'd almost call them kind of soggy) and had so little structure. In the end, while I liked the double amount of peanut butter to butter, this pretty much fell apart after that - pun intended.

Soft, chewy and delicious! These are wonderfully yummy! (And, have no trans fats!) I followed the recipe almost exactly- just added 2 more tablespoons of flour and another 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt. Also instead of mixing in mini chips, I added three regular-sized chocolate chips to the center of each pb cookie after baking. For the crumbling problem- baking longer is not the answer!! I would recommend using insulated baking sheets and a good, thin, metal pancake turner to remove the cookies. Be sure to allow them to cool for 1-2 minutes before removing.

I am an avid cookie baker and these are my favorites to make by far. They are easy and delicious and always get rave reviews. The key is to scoop them with about a 1TBSP round measuring spoon and use baking sheets insulated with air. Also, I usually cook about 8 minutes and leave on the sheet after for atleast 5. They are amazing!!

I thought that these cookies were really good! They were a little soft while i was making the batter so I added a little more flour. They came out thin, big and crispy! Delicious! ... Also a hint to the person who made them and they fell apart: Did you let them cool for 10 to 20 minutes, to let them harden!?

they totally fall apart no matter how much longer you cook them and I cooked them for up to 9 minutes in my oven!! Frustrating and not that good anyway! Sorry.

Very nice cookie! It was just sweet enough and had good peanut butter flavor. Many other pb cookie recipes have way too little pb or too much flour. My family really enjoyed this one--a definite keeper.

These cookies came out perfect. Nice and soft and chewy. I did add more flour though....about 1/4 cup. Also I used 1 cup of large chocolate chips.
