Reviews for Crisp and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
"Very good chewy cookies! I think that 1" balls are big enough. I doubled the recipe and made balls slightly bigger than 1" and that resulted in 41. Lots of calories in one cookie so maybe a little smaller is better?"
"This cookies are really good. I sprinkled them with a bit of sugar."
"turned out great!! Loved it!!"
