Delish! I used creamy pb and rolled and wrapped them so I could slice and bake. They worked out great. My husband wanted more chewy but I thought they were good. I may try them again and not roll them, to see if the consistency is any different. I did use Crisco shortening and the dough came together really nice.
My family is now eating the second batch of these I've made this week, & it's only Wednesday. I took some of them to a few residents of a senior housing facility, & they were requesting more the next day. Easy to make, definitely use 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter, all time favorite!
mine didn't seem to take very much, i added more peanut butter but next time i will add more spices for my preference
EXCELLENT!!!! Love these cookies they are crisp and I would not change a thing.
This recipe is light and crisp, I would make again but it seems to me that I would put more peanut butter in the recipe.
