After reading the reviews, it must be said that I went into this with a bit of trepidation. I took the advice of several posters and added an extra 1/4 cup of flour and an extra 1/2 cup of peanut butter, omitted the egg, and for my own contribution, 1/4 cup less sugar. (equal mix of white and brown). I followed the rest of the recipe to a T. After they came out, I had everyone try one out. It was nice, crumbly, and a bit crunchy. That was the first one with twelve minutes cooking time. The next batch, I went with eleven minutes cooking time. Still a bit too brown around the edges. So I went lower with ten minutes. Still brown. Finally, I went down to nine minutes on the fourth tray and they turned out almost perfect. They were soft, chewy, and peanut buttery. However, the problem was that they were now too oily. There was something about it I couldn't wrap my head around... It was good, it really was, but it wasn't as good as I was first expecting. But it was extremely lush in terms of how fast my friends devoured them. I'm a finicky peanut butter cookie gal, so I think it's more of a personal issue than that the cookies were no good! I'd bake them again, but I'll probably try out a few other recipes that'll satisfy me.
