      This is the perfect classic peanut butter cookie. They were crispy/peanut buttery/buttery - just right. I dipped the fork in sugar instead of flour when making the criss-cross - my preference. The recipe made 36 cookies using 1 1/4 inch balls of dough. It took about 10 - 11 minutes in my oven, and mid-way I turned the cookie sheet since my oven is a little hotter in the back. Hard to beat this recipe.

      Mmmm....these are excellent! The consistency of the dough is perfect. They dough didn't even stick to my hands AT ALL and I only chilled it for about an hour. The cooking time is perfect too. The texture of the cookie is wonderful with buttery crisp edges and a tender center. My only comment is to make sure you have a cooling rack ready as the cookies are quite soft right out of the oven and take a few minutes on the cooling rack to firm up. Yum!
