MY REVIEW

"Hard to believe anyone couldn't make these fabulous cookies! I do not just dump all the ingredients together, however. I also add1 teaspoon baking soda and use half brown and half granulated sugar. I find that by beating the sugars and baking soda together first, then adding the peanut butter until well mixed works best. Last add the egg and beat until it all comes together in a clump and forms balls easily. I make them small and only bake about 9 or 10 minutes. EVERYONE raves about these cookies! They are the BEST peanut butter cookies ever and so easy."

"I like to use powdered sugar instead of granulated (or a combo), and slightly underbake...then of course, eat while they're still hot enough to hurt, lol. They get a little harder than I like when cool regardless of which sugar you use, but warm with powdered sugar melts in your mouth."
