Great cookie! I followed the suggestion of others and cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup each for the brown and white sugars, increased the vanilla, added an extra egg, and increased the peanut butter to one cup and it was great. I also baked for about 10-11 minutes and they came out perfect and didn't crumble at all. Read More

the cookies are pretty good but not mind blowing. PLEASE leave them on the cookie sheet for a minute or two after removing from the oven. If you don't they WILL crumble into a thousand horrible (but tasty) pieces.:) Read More

These were very tasty and everyone liked them. My only problem with them was when I was making them, it was really difficult for the dough to stay together. It kept falling apart and was in pieces. Anyone have any advice on what I could do differently next time? Read More

My husband likes 3 kinds of cookies, so I looked on ingredient search for a recipe that incorporates all 3: peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip. I made the recipe as stated except I did not have WW flour so used AP, I had old fashioned oats & chopped them up a little in the food processor; I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (a tip from Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies, this site), and 1/2 t cinnamon. Just like What A Dish says in her review, they are soft but crisp on the outside. My husband rated these a 5 and asked for me to make them again. Great cookies Laurie! Read More

This is the best peanut butter cookie I have ever tasted! I am a purist and like it even better without the chocolate chips. I wanted the cookies a bit larger and made only about 2 1/2 dozen, increasing the baking time to 10 minutes. I think the cookies should be rolled into balls and pressed with a fork. Read More

I had to package these up and drive them to my husband's work so I wouldn't eat them all. I made them exactly as the recipe indicated and wouldn't change a thing! These are AWESOME! The oatmeal adds texture the peanut butter is a wonderful twist and the chocolate is always a plus! I love these and will doubtless make them time and time again. Thanks for a no-fail pleaser!

Good cookies! I too cut down on the sugar to only 1/2 cup each. I also used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour. I used natural no-sugar peanut butter. I loved the texture of these! Soft but crisp enough on the outside. Easy to make too. Read More

Great cookies! Be sure to use regular oats not quick. I might try a little less white sugar next time. Also be sure to leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing- I only waited 1 minute & they fell apart. I also used mini kisses. YUM!!! Read More

I was disappointed the first time I made these cookies. Working with the dough was a sticky mess and I ended up with extremely crumbly cookie dough. Moreover the cookies did not flatten and only tasted so-so. But the second time I made them I used cookie dough that had been refridgered for several days. Since last time they hadn't flattened I shaped the dough into flat cookie shapes instead of balls and baked them for about 20 minutes in a toaster oven. The results were fantastic cookies that were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside with a smooth peanut buttery flavor all over. Per other reviewers advice I did make some modifications to the recipe. I omitted the wheat flour and upped the all-purpose flour to 1 cup. I decreased the white sugar to 1/2 cup and used natural peanut butter sweetened with honey. I pulverized the oats too and used vanilla sugar instead of vanilla extract. Read More
