No problems, issues or criticisms. This is a basic, classic peanut butter cookie. Nothing extraordinary about it other than there are no problems or issues with the recipe - and in my mind, that's a good thing. I added a little salt to make the flavor come alive, just shy of 1/2 teaspoon. Rather than margarine, which I never use, I substituted half butter and half shortening. What I particularly liked about this recipe is that while most peanut butter cookie recipes call for equal amounts of fat and peanut butter, this one calls for a smidge more peanut putter. I rolled the dough balls in granulated sugar, then pressed the criss-cross pattern into the cookie with more granulated sugar rather than flour. They came out of the oven shaped pretty much the same way they went in - no surprises, which is also a good thing. The cookie has a light texture and is slighty crispy. These are rather small cookies, so I might consider making the dough balls bigger for a more generous-sized cookie.
