I didn't follow this recipe exactly; we only had butter, not shortening, and we didn't have peanuts so I left those out. I doubled the recipe and baked at 335 (that's as hot as my crappy propane fired oven will get.) I was a little disappointed that my cookies didn't turn out with the pretty criss cross pattern on top; they flattened considerably. Perhaps this was caused by the substitution of the butter for shortening. So my review is based on the flavor. This is a fantastic cookie! I love peanut butter cookies and have tried many recipes, and this one is top notch. I will use this recipe again, making sure I have the exact ingredients on hand to see if I can get them to hold their shape. Thanks! Yum!
