It is amazing how much flavor this simple cookie has. I make them very often because I always have the ingredients on hand.—Maggie Schimmel, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

I tried this recipe last night. I was skeptical as it's gluten free, so was my husband. As soon as we tried them we were in love. They went fast! I let them bake for 10 minutes abd they were just starting to burn so be watchful of your cookies.

We've made these cookies for years, usually instead of flattening with a fork just pressing down slightly, then sticking a Hershey kiss on top the second they come out of the oven--yum! The one thing we have discovered is that it is VITAL to use a good-quality peanut butter. I'm not saying it has to be a name brand necessarily, but it does have to be good quality. My daughter made these one day while I was at work, and they came out like tasteless hockey pucks! I couldn't imagine how she managed to mess up this recipe, so we tried it again--same result. I had always used whatever brand of peanut butter I had on hand (and with 5 mouths to feed, that was often whatever was on the best sale), but evidently, I'd always lucked out prior to that day. I bought a different brand, and we tried again, and they were back to being the wonderful cookie we know and love. We also usually make them smaller and bake for only about 10 minutes.

Yes! That's it, 3 ingredients. A few years ago a friend's father made these. He told me the recipe and thought everyone knew about these simple, great cookies. Ever since then they have become a staple in our household. Great last minute cookie or snack after school. Only difficult part is waiting for them to cool! TIP: We usually make 24 smaller cookies, requires only about 8 minutes in over. Also, Spray your measuring cup with PAM first and the PB will come out clean with ease.
