MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2013

My family wanted extra peanut buttery cookies so I used chocolate-peanut butter swirled chips instead of just chocolate and swapped out the raisins for peanut butter M&M's (which added fun color) and left out the coconut. They are amazing! Next time we might try Reese's Pieces.

This recipe is easy and DELICIOUS! I didn't have any peanuts, so I added an extra half cup coconut. Very, very good cookies.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2010

These cookies have a very good buttery flavor. I will definetly make them again. However I dropped the dough by heaping teaspoons and I got 48 cookies that were abut 11/2 inches across. Not large cookies at all. No way can you get 72 cookies. I also cooked all batches at 350 for 12 minutes. That seemed to be perfect for my oven . Watch your time on your first batch.
