These were really good and easy to make-be sure to let the cookies cool on a cookie sheet for five minutes before removing them to a rack or they will fall apart-
I'm sorry, but I didn't like these cookies one bit. I even threw them away, which is something I never, ever do with sweets. I really wanted to like these, since they are so easy, but they are just bland and non-dimensional in taste. I guess that's what the rest of the ingredients are for... I won't be making this ever again, obviously.
This is my trademark recipe that I received many years ago from a friend. My version though is less sugar (1/2 cup not 1 cup) and I add 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, not a minute more!
I am giving this a 5 for several reasons:
1. I only had 1 egg
2. So easy
3. Very versatile
4. I love peanut butter! If you don't love pb these are not for you.
The first 9 small cookies I made following recipe. My hub & kids liked, the next 9 I mixed in choco chips, we loved, the last 9 I mixed in even more choco chips & walnuts. Delicious.
It's an ice/snow day here in Rowlett, we didn't have school so I am looking for ways to keep the house warm with the oven going all day & entertain everyone with good food. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is a great recipie if you need a quick dessert. I was surprised that they turned out so great with only 3 ingedients! I used white sugar and they turned out fine. I would highly reccomend them if you need a fast easy cookie.
UPDATE!!!! I tried to multiply this recipie times 5 for a big event and it DID NOT WORK!!!!!!!!!! If you are thinking about multiplying the recipie, maybe twice is okay but not more than that! Dont do it, you will waste ingredients. The dough came out super greasy I think because of the eggs. I tried to recover by adding flour but it was disastourous.
A great recipe for when you need a cookie fix fast ^_^
* sprinkle plain unsalted peanuts and a little extra brown sugar on top of the cookies for decoration
* make sure to give plenty of space between cookies, they will spread quite a bit
* if you add peanuts or chocolate chips to the mix, make sure to decrease the amount of brown sugar slightly
These were sooo easy and sooo good! The best part is, that they are very inexpensive to make. They also stay really soft. I added 1/2 cup of oats, to give some extra texture, nice recepie!
I was craving peanut butter cookies last night, but didn't want to go through the fuss of "making cookies", so I decided to try these. Wow, was I surprised! They are the richest, most decadent peanut butter cookies I have ever had. They have almost a fudge-like texture. Definitely satisfied my craving!
