If you've tried the others & are disappointed in the flavor, try this one. My recipe is just slightly different so I figured I'd review this one instead of posting another recipe. When one uses too much sugar i.e. 2 cups, it waters down the flavor. I use 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I prefer to use the 1/4 cup measuring cup for the cocoa powder. I use smooth peanut butter & I use regular oats. Make sure to have the oats measured out into a bowl & the peanut butter measured out into the measuring cup before hand & a measuring tsp ready to measure the vanilla. Have your wax paper, foil or parchment paper ready before starting too. I use about a foot & a half long piece. If the cookies are boiled correctly, they will not spread & you can place them about an inch apart. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, then start the count down to 1 minute. If you have bad luck with them setting up, add 10 seconds to the count down. If they do not set up, they are still quite edible with a spoon. I use a flatware tablespoon/serving spoon, heaping, to scoop these out. I get 22 cookies with my recipe which is 1/4 cup of sugar smaller than this recipe. If this recipe isn't working for you, it's you, not the recipe ratio. Possibly humidity or altitude is affecting your results. Adjust boiling time based on your results. FYI This cookie does not taste overly of peanut butter, didn't know PB was in it first time I tasted. If one can not have PB, use almond or nut butter. Allow 45 minutes to set up.
