    I like this with 2/3 cups sugar if you are using a sweetened peanutbutter--otherwise they're fabulous! - 12/23/08

    THey hold together wonderfully without the flour...although they are sticky when you roll them in a ball. I usuallly put my fork in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar when I indent the cookies....and I always make a double batch.....they turn out perfect. - 12/22/08

    Loved making these! Three ingredients I already had in my cupboard and took no more than five minutes to get in the oven. Doesn't get much better than that with a toddler running around! They do fall apart, but it's a small price to pay for the easy, easy recipe. - 11/11/10

    I made these tonight and they are GREAT! All I had was reduced fat peanut butter so I used that and I also used half sugar and half splenda. Mine came out to be 82 calories and 4 grams of fat per cookie. Delicious! - 8/4/09

    Does this recipe have some gluten free flour in it? I can't see how it would stay together with just peanut butter sugar and egg, unless the peanut butter in America is different to here in Australia. - 12/30/07

  • If I were to use splenda, how much of it should I use?

  • These are serioulsy amazing! Easy and delicous, crunchy yet chewy. Quick to make and satisfy a craving, perfect, because they are flourless and low-carb! Yum!
    I did not roll theminto balls, but did roll in icing sugar. They did fall apart, but could be pressed into shape fresh out the oven. - 5/27/11

  • They fall apart very easy...but they taste delicious. My husband and EXTREMELY picky man nearly devoured all of them! I put my batch in for a little longer to get it good & crisp. I think it helped to hold them together a little better. Very impressed. - 1/27/11

  • The taste was good and my family members enjoyed these cookies, but my only complaint was that the cookies fall apart so easily. (of course they do, there's no flour) but it made it hard to give these cookies as a gift for Christmas. - 12/28/09

  • I've made this recipe for years too and love it. I've also had no problem with doubling the recipe. For a little extra kick you can add a teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract. And both cream and chunky peanut butter make delicious cookies! - 12/31/07
