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!

This recipe is perfect for people that want to have a nice sized batch without having to make 200 cookies

These are so flaky and delicious. They turned out larger than I thought they would. A very happy suprise! I also dipped the fork in sugar instead of the flour. I have never been much of a baker but you just can't miss with these cookies. Look out Mrs. Fields!!

These are an incredibly tasty cookie. Half the mix I made as per recipe, the other half I added some choc chips. Both delicious. I did have to add some extra flour to make rolling a little easier. The uncooked cookie dough is also delicious so be careful if you have some one in your family you likes to eat it that way.

Very, very good. I used crunchy peanut butter since that was all I had on hand. They were a big hit -- including the dog who stole a half dozen.

I needed a recipe to please my husband who likes a crisp cookie to dip in milk. He tasted one and said "It's PERFECT". Nuff said. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

WOW!!! these are VERY good! mmmmm...cookies will be very delicate when transferring to cooling rack. Once cooled the outside is slightly crispy and the center is soft. the best PB cookies! can't stop nibbling on them :)

hmmmm tasted a bit funny... not very peanut buttery. they also became very crispy and even burned when baked for 9 minutes. maybe my oven was too hot or it was my fault, but these were a bit off. thanks for the recipe!!
