I'm new to this gluten-free cooking stuff, and these were great! Some changes I made right off based on some other recepies I looked at and comments: 1 c white, 1 c brown sugar; 1/2 tsp bkg soda; 1/2 tsp vanilla; 1/2 c coconut; didn't use pecans 'cause didn't have them. Didn't bake for more than 9 min.

I hate to say it but this was awful. The consistancy was like poo. Baked it longer than it called for too. Gooey and sticky mess. I can't imagine what I did wrong?

I have spent years baking and developing gluten and wheat free cookies and recipies we have many family members with celiacs. This the. The only changes I made was to add 1/2 tsp more salt and I omited the nuts (only because I diddn't have any on hand) I also chunked up some chocolate but not more than about 1/2 of a cup I like more cookie than chips. I have to admit I was nervous about the soft oily dough, but it cooked up perfectly crispy in the outside and chewey in the middle. I baked them both on my Silpat mats and on parchment paper lined cookie sheets, both turned out great. I let them cool on the cookie sheet a few minnutes before moving them to a cooling rack. These are the most cookie like gluten free cookie I have ever made.

I thought these were GREAT!! The only problem I had with these is I used and ungreased, air-bake cookie sheet... and had to pry them off, I switched to a lightly greased "regular" cookie sheet, and the rest came out beautifully!!

Really good cookies! I followed some of the other suggestions--1 c. white and 1 c. brown sugar. I added 1/2 c. (sifted) GF baking mix (Bob's Red Mill), 1/2 t. baking powder, 1/2 t. GF vanilla, 1 c. chocolate chips and 1 c. chopped pecans. I made them a little bigger (1 T.) and baked them for 15 minutes. Fabulous!

Much more gooey and deliciously peanut-buttery than most other PB cookie recipes. If you liked eating spoonfuls of PB from the jar as a kid, you will LOVE this recipe! Made them for a friend who is on a gluten-free diet and we ALL ended up loving them! Natural PB is recommended if artificial preservatives are a concern (true in the case of my friend). I used Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips which was great to cut through the sweetness of the dough. These don't really need nuts since the PB-nutty taste is quite prevalent. I had to cook a little longer than specified, but they firmed up nicely and didn't stick to the cookie sheet (regular dark sheet).

This was a huge hit! Don't forget to grease the cookie sheet, because otherwise they would be impossible to get off! Better yet, use some aluminum foil and peel them off the foil.

I made these for my husband's grandmother and they were very good. I gave her some dough to freeze and she said that it freezes well.
