    I made these cookies 3 nights in a row for get-togethers and 5 people asked me for the recipe! Awesome cookies and SUPER EASY! One little tip--make sure to let the batter sit about 5-8 minutes before spooning out and baking, otherwise the batter will stick to your hands when trying to roll it. - 3/6/08

    I made these twice using reduced fat peanut butter and the second time I changed out white to whole wheat flour. Next I will try half splenda and sugar. They were fantastic both times. I need to refigure calories with changes. Try them there great. Thanks for the recipe. - 1/13/08

    I substituted Splenda white and brown sugar for a lower calorie and didn't make a difference in the taste. Low fat peanut butter too. - 12/18/07

    These were great! However, I made the mistake of substituting margarine for the butter, and they turned out rather greasy, but great tasting and very chewy. Will definitely make again but will actually follow the recipe! - 8/4/08

    My family loves this recipe. When I make these, I always use JIF peanut butter which I think gives the cookies the best flavor. - 7/31/09

    My boyfriend's favorite cookie is peanut butter cookies so I have been on the search for the "Best" peanut butter cookie for the last 5 years. Here it is! Just make sure you watch the cookies in your oven. Mine runs a little hot so I had some dark bottoms. They bake up fast. - 2/27/08

    I used Splenda instead of sugar and Sugar Twin Brown Sugar Substitute along with Eggbeaters instead of regular egg. I thought about using 3 egg whites and may do it next time. - 12/25/07

    Used low-fat chunky pb; half of the butter; added 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce; no milk; 1 c. whole wheat flour and 1/2 c. all-purpose flour; eliminated salt. Chilled for about 15 minutes before rolling into balls. Delightful! - 12/16/10

    These cookies have a great flavor and consistency. They are not a low calorie dessert but may be good for events. With this recipe, I made 23 2-inch cookies using light butter for half of it. They had 158 calories per cookie. Need to have amazing willpower to just eat one! - 7/29/09

    These are great. I add 1/2 tsp almond flavoring, and that bumps up the nut flavor. (Bakery trick learned 40 years ago) - 4/8/10

    I made them tonight for dessert with dinner. They were a hit. Ate two of them...how many calories is that? Want to get to the cookie jar now and eat some more. Wonderful with a glass of milk, too. Next time will add some more PB for extra taste. Love them!!! - 6/22/09
