this recipe only serves as a guideline for me, but it's very helpful. I personally leave out the coconut flakes every time i bake these cookies, and i always add 1 or 2 teaspoons of milk into the batter. I like my cookies soft, and the milk and minimum baking time does the trick.

This recipe had good flavor and helped me perfect my own peanut butter cookie recipe. HOWEVER. No matter what I did the ingredients in the amounts given resulted in flat spread out cookies that were not soft the next day. The coconut is awesome. Hint: use more peanut butter and flour. I also recommend adding a little vanilla.=)

I made a batch of these, thinking they would be nice to have on the counter for a snack. In three hours, the entire batch was gone...that's what happens when you live with boys, I guess!! They said they were the best p.b. cookies EVER!

One of the best peanut butter cookies I've ever tasted. The only bad point is that they're addictive and fattening...but who cares about that?!

This recipe is ok as it is, however the cookies come out very flat and a little crunchy. I add 1/2 cup of flower, and 1/2 cup of peanut butter, then cook at 350 for 10 min. This makes for a light soft and VERY tasty cookie!

These were great, but I found 375 to be too high. The first batch burned and I only had them in for 10 min, but the seond batch came out perfect and I cooked them for 12 min at 350. They had a perfect consistency and just the right amount of peanut butter and sweetness flavor. I did add about 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey to the batter.

I didn't mean to add anything to an already perfect recipe, but I couldn't resist using crunchy peanut butter and adding a 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels... and it still came out to be a 5-star favorite in our home! So easy and so good -- with or without the morsels -- completely different tastes but both so perfect!
