These are likely the best cookies I've ever had! Used only 1/2 tsp salt since I didn't have unsalted butter. No peanut butter cups either; used crunchy peanut butter and it added extra crunch. Perfect! Read More

Mmmm! This was my first go at peanutbutter cookies and let me tell ya, they were great! I got home from school and it took me probably 15 minutes to mix the batter up! It was so quick and easy! I didn't have the peanut butter cups candy, but I did have the resces chips (mini peanut butter cups that you would use as chocolate chips) so I used those instead. I had to use less salt because I only had salted butter, and even though the recipe says it makes 12, I got about 30 cookies. I probably would have gotten more if I hadn't eaten the dough! Also, use less chocolate chips, the cookies won't be as sweet and overpowering. I used a natural peanut butter (Skippy no stir natural) and had no problems with consistancy. Definately a winner!

These cookies are excellent! I did make a few changes to cut the sweetness - used only 1 cup of sugar increased the peanut butter to 3/4 cup and used natural peanut butter. I also reduced the chocolate chips to 1.5 cups and omitted the peanut butter cups. The dough was a little dry due to the whole wheat flour so I added 3 tbls of milk and baked the cookies for 13mins. Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a good 10mins prior to moving them so they crisp up. They're awesome!!! Read More
