    Chef #546883's Note:

    This recipe is from a 1999 Gourmet magazine that I've added to. It's a bit different than other PB cookie recipes here. These crispy and peanutty cookies never last long anywhere I've taken them.

      and they won't last long around here either!! DH says they are the best peanut butter cookies he has ever had, loves'em!! So easy too. The only complaint I have is that I don't know how you would get 48 cookies from it , I only got 28 and they were not particulary big. Next time I will double the batch. They are very very good!! thanks for posting.

      These cookies are fabulous! Slightly crunchy & sugary; super easy to make. I only got 20 cookies out of this recipe, though, not 48; this is ok by me because that means less temptation!
