Family favorite

As one of the few people who do not like chocolate chip/ chunk cookies these are great! This recipe has become a family favorite. I find them a little on the dry side but no one seems to mind that at all.

I was so disappointed in this recipe because it received a majority of great reviews and when I tasted it I totally agreed with the minority of the reviews saying that these cookies have a cake like texture and barely tasted like peanut butter. My husband said that they tasted good but he couldn’t taste the peanut butter in it and I totally agreed with him. They tasted good not great just like good chocolate-chips cookies. I won’t make this recipe again and I will continue to look for a great peanut butter cookie recipe…This was certainly not it.

I just finished making these cookies and my husband has eaten 4 already. I did not have chocolate chuunks, so I used 3/4 cups peanut butter chips and 3/4 cups m & m's along with chopped peanuts. It worked out fine. Every cookie has bits of goodness in every bite.
