This is a great recipe. However, after mixing and baking, and finally trying one, I realized something was missing. Salt. It may not seem like such a big deal to omit the salt, but it makes a bi...

This recipe was a good starting point. I, like many others, took several suggestions from these comments and from there tweaked it a bit more myself. With my changes, these are by far the best p...

Wow!!! . . . These are the best p.b. cookies I have ever made. I'm not a fan of cripy cookies and these turned out amazingly chewy and moist. I did add a couple extra things - 1/2 c. extra p.b...
