I should start by saying that I used a lot of the suggestions of previous reviewers. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 crisco, and omitted the cocoa for more of a peanut butter cookie with chunks/chips flavor. I also used mini PB cups that I cut in half and froze before adding to the batter. The "pros" of this cookie are that it looked absolutely fantastic and had a very delicate crumbly texture. My PB cups remained as yummy chunks and really looked/tasted great in the cookie. The "cons" were that it was relatively time consuming to prepare with the unwrapping, cutting, and freezing of the PB cups, the actual "cookie" part did not have much flavor despite the 3/4 c. PB in the batter, and worst of all the cookie looked much better than it tasted IMO (it looked fantastic but tasted OK).
All in all, it's not a BAD recipe overall IMO, it's just not that great, and considering the amount of special ingredients that I had to buy because I don't usually keep them around the house (PB cups and chips) and the time it took to prep the recipe, I don't think I'd be especially inclined to make them again.
