We are addicted to these cookies!

I increased the peanut butter to 1 cup, used half crisco & half butter, used semi sweet chocolate chips, omited the sugar topping & did not flatten the cookies. Everyone that tastes these cookies asks for the recipe. They are fabulous.

These cookies were great! I couldn't get them out of the oven quick enough for my company. My husband loves them. I am sure I will be baking again. I did add a 1/2 c. more flour than it called for!

Great with PB Chips Too!

These cookies are the perfect mix of crunch and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I am unable to eat chocolate, but I added peanut butter chips, and they worked very well.

Sooo Good!

These are sooo good and so easy! Very light & delicious! I will totally make again! A nice alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies.

I know 'YUM-E' is not a word, but, these cookies are great! I altered it by adding a teaspoon of cinnamon and added about 1 3/4 cup oats.
