Made these just now and I had to eat one warm: it's literally like eating a butter cookie with a little tint of peanut butter. If you're looking for rich peanut butter cookies you're in the wrong place but these are still very good. The only alteration is did was only use 1 cup 1/3 cup and about 2 tblsp of flour due to the comments about how crumbly they are. They flattened a little bit so if you really want balls then 1 and 2/3 cup flour would probably work. Melt in your mouth delicious! Read More
