    I made these using Truvia and it worked very well! Using the Truvia cuts the calories down to just under 50 a cookie and they taste great! They really take care of the sweet cravings. - 10/19/11

    I have been making these cookies for a few years and EVERYONE loves them,but I use brown sugar! I do add a little vanilla and also mix it with an electric mixer-for what seems like a long time lol...but if I don't they tend to fall apart. Gonna try them with Splenda Brown sugar... - 12/10/12

    these are Great! My kids didn't even notice they were Gluten and Dairy free! I added just a little bit of Gerber Cereal for Baby Rice - 1/2 cup to give them a little more body and they turned out awesome. I also added some mini chocolate chips to half the batch for something a little different. - 12/14/09

    This is the same recipe I use for peanut butter kisses. Just roll into a ball and bake and as soon they come out of the oven add a Hersey kiss in the middle of each cookie. My son's favorite! - 12/10/12

    I easily burnt the first batch, even though they were in for the recommended 9 minutes...so watch them carefully! I turned back the heat to 350 and after 8 minutes they were done.

    Hubby mucked into them when he got home, and I'm having trouble avoiding eating too many! Vanilla might help thoug

    I LOVED these, and so did my friends! They were a little crumbly, but when you bite into them they are very moist! If I wasn't the one who made them, I wouldn't have known that they were gluten and dairy free! STRONGLY recommend! - 7/11/13

    I made these with 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda, and was surprised at the nice consistency. I only got 13 balls though, so mine are thick though I did flatten them some, and took 15 mins to bake @ 350. They are nice with tea, and my version is chewy. Will add vanilla and a pinch of salt next time. - 12/2/13

    I made these last night and they were really good. Although I didn't get 36, I actually got 16 cookies out of it so they were a bit higher than 67.9 calories each lol. Next time I make them, I'm going to make them smaller. - 1/27/13

    I use chunky Jif and cut back the sugar to 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar. The secret for a well formed cookie is to beat the dough until it holds together (I use a stand mixer). This recipe make about 12 real sized cookies, that are about 2-2.5 inches in diameter. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. - 9/18/13

    These cookies are delicious and there couldn't be an easier recipe than this. For an added treat, I add chocolate chips to the batter. And yes, you can bake these with the crunchy peanut butter. Thanks for the tip to use Nutella. If anyone has any other gluten free recipes please share them. Thanx - 12/10/12

    Didn't have any peanut butter on hand, so I used almond butter instead. In case anyone's wondering, they're fabulous that way too! I also added a pinch of salt since the almond butter I use doesn't have any in it. The dough was very gooey, but putting it in the fridge for 10 minutes sorted that. - 4/30/15

    Use a cookie scoop rather than rolling balls and mark with a fork twice prior to baking. I use Airbake cookie sheets & leave them baking for 12 mins. After removing from oven let them cool down 7-10 mins then carefully move onto a cooling rack. Don't touch for 15 mins and they will firm up. - 12/4/14

    Changes: 1/2 c Splenda brown sugar blend for the 1 c regular sugar, 1 t vanilla, and 1/2 c old-fashioned oats. Used Jif extra crunchy because that's what I had. It made 24 teeny cookies but very tasty. Baked at 350 8 minutes. Calculated 89 calories and 7.5 g carbs per cookie. Hard to just eat one! - 8/2/14

    This recipe is great! It's a little sticky, so I don't use the bottom of a glass to flatten, it would stick to the glass! Taste is wonderful, here is a hint to make them better-I have found that Adams all natural peanut butter makes the best cookies. I used Kirkland brand and it wasn't the same. - 12/2/13

    I have made these many times for my GF daughter and they are really good. I try to cut the sugar back to 3/4 of a cup and it doesn't seem to affect the end product. You definitely have to watch portion control and they get crumbly after a few days. We freeze them take them out as needed. - 12/2/13

    I have been making these forever. I often sub 1/2 c Brown sugar, or a bit of honey for some of the sugar, but add some thickner like powdered milk before adding the egg. Once you make it a few times, you'll know the consistancy it needs before going in the oven and can add/sub from there. Enjoy!! - 10/18/11

  • This recipe is GREAT tasting! It is just me--so I like to whip an entire batch, get them ready on the tray for baking, but then freeze the tray. Once solid, I transfer the unbaked cookies to an air-proof, freezer-friendly container. Later, I bake 1-2 at a time, as needed in the toaster oven. - 11/15/17
