"These are from the war era and are very easy to assemble. I do it in my mixer. My Mom would make these when we came home from school and they were always good with a big glass of milk."

pretty good, not too sweet, I did roll balls into chopped cocktail peanuts which added a salty note...I'll make them again for sure, maybe add sugar to the chopped nuts

Most helpful critical review

It's an ok recipe, but it's a bit dry which overpowers the peanut butter taste. I would make them again, but I would probably increase the peanut butter by a 1/4 cup.

These get a middling rating because, like another reviewer, I found them to be way too crumbly - fragile, in fact. The taste was pretty good, but somewhat mild. I did give a few of the best ones...

They came out nice and soft, but bland and salty. =(

I did add 1/4 cup more PB as a previous reviewer stated they would do. The recipe was a little confusing because it says to beat IN the egg, etc, and then add it to the bowl of creamy PB mixture...

This is the exact recipe I was looking for. Brings back many fond memories of not only eating them but making them too!

Terrible and dry. 10 minutes=burned.

These werent totally awful..but I thought they were much too crumbly and certainly not sweet.

Not bad, but too crumbly. I rolled mine in sugar, and still too plain.
