      Very good recipe! I cut the sugar by half, 1/2 c. white, 1/2 c. brown, and they were perfect. Thanks for postibg!

      Great cookies. Just like I remembered. However, I had to adjust the temp in my oven. 375 made the bottoms too brown. I adjusted back to 350. Thank you so much for posting.

      My friend Mary makes these as well ... the only difference is that she only uses 2 1/4 cup flour and bakes for 10 min at 350 degrees. She also sprinkles sugar on top ... yummy. I was going to post the recipe when I found this one. The BEST peanut butter cookie out there!
