    I make this same recipe but I call them 1,2,3 peanut butter cookies as they have 3 ingredients, 1 C. sugar, 1 C. PB, 1 egg. I do not use baking soda.

    Brown sugar makes them more chewy, white sugar makes them more crisp, and splenda makes them crumble. - 9/3/10

    I saw this recipe on Paula Deen's show except hers used Splenda and 1 tsp vanilla instead of baking soda so it is okay for diabetics. My mother (diabetic) loves them. - 1/24/08

    Very easy and tasty! I'm always looking for natural healthy wheat-free recipies. Make sure you let the cookies cool before you try to move them. When they're warm they crumble. - 3/29/08

    I've been making these for a few weeks now. I have never put baking soda in them though. Just the PB, sugar and 1 egg. Def take them out a little early cuz they are nasty if over cooked. My toddler love them and is allergic to diary. She actually helps me make these. - 9/18/08

    This recipe is great! My cookies turned out just perfect. I didn't have the problem with the crumbling. I baked them 10 minutes then I left them on the cookie sheet a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
    This is definitely something I will make again. Perfect for a sweet tooth. - 2/22/10

  • I have been making these cookies for several years. Like other reviews I have never used baking soda in mine. I did like a couple of the ideas I saw in some other reviews, add 1 t vanilla or use brown sugar. Definitely bake for a shorter amount of time, 10 min max, or they will be overcooked. - 9/27/12

  • I've made these with 1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c white sugar and 1c PB. They're often crumby, but that makes them a hit at work since they can't easily take a whole cookie. Adding the egg makes them chewy, but they do stay together. Haven't tried baking soda, but original recipe I found had it, no egg - 7/20/12
