I also thought the mix was a little crumbly, however, I just added a 1/4 c. more PB and they turned out great!! Baked for 9 minutes and they were nice and chewy. A keeper!
I was so disappointed with this recipe. Much like some of the other reviewers, whose comments I should have read, first, I added butter, milk, and more peanut butter trying to make these cookies suitably moist to no avail. They were dry and crumbly and I could taste the shortening in the cookie.
I used butter instead of shortening. The cookies turned out well. Not very peanut buttery, I would recommend using more peanut butter than the recipe calls for.
Great cookie. I wanted peanut butter cookies but had no butter, so I chose this since it used shortening. These have a mild peanut butter taste, so if you are looking for peanut butter overload, look elsewhere. I halfed all of the ingredients, and it ended up yielding 18 decent sized cookies. I lined my cookie sheet with parchment and 9 minutes was perfect for these. A nice soft and chewy cookie - not sure what the other reviewers are doing wrong to end up with dry cookies. This is a simple, fast and delicious recipe. I sprinkled them with a bit of sugar as soon as I took them out of the oven. Will definitely make again!
i loved this recipe its ez and the cookies look great! (taste good too)
i didnt use grease on the pan i used wax paper then lightly sprayed it with PAM>the bottoms were beeeeutiful!
i love peanut butter cookies and these are some of the BEST.thanks for the recipe
I, too, had a problem with crumbly dough. I switched up 1/2 a cup of the white sugar for 1/2 cup of dark brown and it made them extremely moist, even after sitting out all night. I also added the extra 1/4 cup of peanut butter that several reviewers recommended adding. I am not a peanut butter fan, that would be my husband's department and he completely loved these, he said they were better than his mother's and that's a super hard act to follow. I like the fact that these only make around 2 dozen...with only 2 of us, things have a tendancy to go stale before they all get eaten. I will be using this as my peanut butter cookie recipe from now on. Thanks for the great recipe!
I disagree with all the negative reviews of this cookie - I thought it was pretty dang good, actually. It was sugary/buttery and had just the right amount of peanut butter taste mixed it. (If you're looking for A LOT of peanut butter taste - this cookie isn't for you.)My cookie mixture had no trouble with moisture, it mixed up perfectly with the directions provided.. so.. I dunno why mine was great and others had problems.. but there you have it.
I made these cookies today and my family loved them I used the crisco butter sticks and I really creamed together the shortening and the peanut butter with the sugar until it was light in color then I went along with the rest of the recipe and my cookies turned out great. I didn't get the crumble that others have stated and my cookies was soft. I really think you need to know your stove and pull your cookies a little before they are done because they are still cooking while they are on the cookie sheet when you remove them.
