This simple, tasty recipe yields 12 to 16 cookies, but is so simple that it can be doubled (or tripled!) easily.

Simple and delicious! I used crunchy peanut butter and mini chocolate chips. Also, I used my small cookie scoop and got 26 cookies out of this. Baking for 8 mins. was perfect for my oven. The kids (and adults) are LOVING them...definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

This was my first attempt at a flour-free baking recipe. I made these exactly as directed but the cookies didn't come out very well at all. I moved one from the baking sheet to a cooling rack it crumpled fell through the wires and onto the counter. Think I'll stick to a more traditional recipe next time. Read More

So simple to follow, my kids did it all on their own. I halved the amount of white sugar, since I used the no-stir crunchy peanut butter. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly, but increased the baking time to about 10-20 minutes depending on the cookie thickness and size. After it comes out of the oven, leave it to cool for one minute. If you can shift it around the baking sheet without it crumbling, it's good to go. Otherwise, I popped it back into the oven. Once it can be moved, I let it cool on a wire rack. Cookies spread out a little, so the 2" gauge was pretty good. Texture is crunchy on the outside, a little soft on the inside (perhaps shortening the baking time might make it more chewy). So yummy and easy to make! Read More

Made with crunchy peanut butter (3/4 was Adams and 1/4 Kraft). Delish! I've heard that using natural peanut butter can sometimes make recipes a bit drier so next time I will use Kraft. Read More

Big hit at family Christmas get together! I exchanged coconut sugar for the white sugar and they were still sweet enough. I used a fork to crisscross on them flattening them. Read More
