Reviews for Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
"A quick and easy treat for the kids to make. My boys made them, and we couldn't believe they actually worked. Great recipe!"
"Seems easy... I'll find out in 30 mins!"
"I am makingmaking these now on 07-17-2015 I seen it on Facebook page and had to try here at 2:18am what am I thinking better be good."
"Best peanut butter cookie I have ever made! My daughter made them for a 4-H baking contest and won!"
"This is a good basic recipe. I took it to another level with super chunky peanut butter and Biscoff's european cookie spread. I doubled the recipe and used 1 1/4 cup super chunky peanut butter and 3/4 cup Biscoff spread. It is divine!"
"These are very good-love the no flour! Added chocolate chips. Like that it only makes about 2 dozen. The cook time was too long-only took about 12 minutes."
"Take a backseat on this one!! Give the kids the bowl, spoon and cookie sheet! This is a simple, classic peanut butter cookie. It never disapoints. This versitile recipe can be easily varied by adding chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips. We have made these into balls and simple added a chocolate kiss or mimi peanut butter cup to the top after baking. These cookies are not only a wonderful cookie but your house will smell wonderful!"
"Easy and good! Definitely my favorite!"
"Added semi sweet chocolate chips and everyone loved them."
"Leave out the vanilla, it's good that way! And yes - NO flour!"
"mcgee64,there are several peanut butter cookie recipes on TOH that are flourless. It isn't any mistake"
"This is a great recipe. I made the cookies using a 1 1/4 in scoop to make the balls and didn't flatten them. They came out fine."
"its easy to make and i substituted raw sugar for the regualar sugar, also added a few chocolate chips yummy."
"I made a recipe similar to this. It called for baking soda,not vanilla and chopped peanuts. Cool the cookies, then add melted choc. chips and chopped nuts. GLUTEN FREE"
"I've made these and it's really is the 3 ingredients...amazed me too but they are really, really good. I'm going to add chopped peanuts to my next batch."
"I would like to try this recipe. However, I see there is no mention of flour. Is this correct?"
