My kids and husband LOVE these cookies! They are dense flavorful and filling. Not to mention a pretty little cookie! I did add 1/4 tsp salt added 1/2 cup flour and used salted butter. I also cooked the cookie for 12 1/2 minutes at 340 and they turned out perfect. Any longer or at 350 and they got crispy and started to burn. My cookies were shaped perfectly and did not go flat like other readers..... I will be making these again!;) THanks for the recipe. Read More

I thought these cookies were okay. They had a decent flavor but I thought they were a little bland. I used white chocolate chips instead of peanut butter chips and I like that really well. I only cooked mine for 16 and they were hard as a rock. I would recommend trying 12-14 minutes. Hope this Helps! Read More

We reduced the baking time to 12 minutes at 300 degrees and the cookies turned out fabulously any longer and they may have gotten too dry or burnt. Great recipe! Read More

These were pretty tasty... a bit greasy though. I did indeed get that crumbly texture. The only change I made was to use margarine instead of butter and I found the first sheet didn't spread much so after that I flattened them with a fork. An excellent procrastination break. Read More

These cookies are wonderful. I work at a Maytag store and used the Jenn-Air convection oven and cooked them for 12 minutes. They were perfectly soft and chewey in the middle! My customers LOVED them! Read More

The cookies turned out really good in flavor....but were also flat as pancakes! I followed the recipe to a T so...not sure what went wrong. Might try again....might not. Either way thanks for the recipe. Read More
