MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2016

"Excellent cookie. I cut the white sugar by 2tablespoons as suggested. I used one whole egg instead of two egg whites. I used parchment paper on the cookie sheet. I also added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts since i used creamy peanut butter. I cut the peanut butter to 1 cup."
