The name of this cookie is misleading. It's a PB cookie, not a shortbread... And as PB cookies go, I have never had a better one. I had been looking for a good recipe for a few years but every one I made didn't have enough peanut butter flavor. I figured this was a good one because it had no flour to dull the taste. Found it a little sweet so I halved the sugar the second time around. After my husband (the PB cookie monster) tried this one, he said I'm not to look any more. This is it!!!! The batch only lasts a few days (if that) but that could be because my teen and my hubby eats 3-5 at a time

I have made this once before but it was called flourless peanut butter cookies. By any name it is the best and most peanut buttery. No need for flour and the most important thing to know is that you need to let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before you transfer to cooling rack. It is delicate at that point. I have many at my boyfriends workplace complimenting this cookie.

I really enjoyed this recipe, it is so easy to toss together and cook and is so chewy with an incredible taste.

I'm having trouble keeping these cookies around; they keep vanishing. You'd think with no flour they'd be bland, but they are not. They are FULL of peanut butter flavor - not dulled by flour. The sugar gives them a slightly grainy texture that may disappear if baked longer - I pulled mine out at the golden stage (12 minutes) as I don't like browned cookies. I also halved the recipe (easy to do) and ended up with 26 2-bite cookies.

It's not like other shortbread in that it is all peanutbutter but it is delish especially for an easy quick recipe. If you love peanut butter or know a peanut butter lover. this is your recipe.

These were okay, but I didn't taste anything that was shortbread, a little heavy.

Incredibly good cookie. Don't even try it if you don't like peanut butter. So simple and yet so good.
