smooth peanut butter

chocolate chips, or as needed
How far this recipe stretches really depends on how big you make the dough balls. For the first few batches, we used about 1/2 Tbs per ball. It worked just fine, but we realized we were going to have a ton of cookies (not that that's a bad thing!), so we moved up to a full Tbs per ball, which also worked great. Either way, the peanut butter cookie with pretzel is a winner!
While the cookie is super cute, it does lack in flavor. It is lacking about a cup of sugar. The batter tasted great, but baked they were bland except for where the candy was. If you added about 3/4 cup brown sugar that might do the trick. I tried it with 3/4 cup white and 1/2 brown and it still wasn't sweet enough.
Good cookies! @bugparks, how did you burn yourself putting on a pretzel? I believe the directions say to put the decorations on before you bake the cookies, not after.
its not really bad at all i made it for my dad and he loved them i will absolutely keep this recipe ! :D
Batter wasn't very sweet. Decorations are cute, but our family thought the recipe was NOT a keeper.
Forgot the eggs!! Still delicious :) a little fragile but happy.
Fun recipe to do with kids. The recipe called for 24 balls, that would make the reindeer face way to big in proportion to the decoration. I ended up with 3 dozen cookies and the faces were still too big. The cookies tasted pretty good, it's flaky instead of soft and chewy, and not overly sweet. I used 2 1/2 cups of flour and half a cup of quick oats and 2 table spoons of ground flax seed for some texture.
Cute and easy. However, I shaped in ovals and everything worked out great. The dough isn't sweet enough for my family and me. I may need to use another peanut butter recipe. I used Jiffy peanut butter not sure if maybe I should try another brand and add more sugar.
