It is amazing how much flavor these simple peanut butter cookies have. I make them very often because I always have the ingredients on hand. —Maggie Schimmel, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

"Is this a flourless recipe?"

"I have been making this recipe for years and I LOVE it! I have never had a problem with them crumbling so it must make a difference with the pan you bake on. I only bake them on stoneware and have never had a problem. They come out soft and will stay soft by putting in an air tight container. Everyone always asks for this recipe when I share them and can't believe how simple they are to make. My only change is the baking time to 13 min. Yummy!"

"My 12 year old makes these all the time. They are perfect. One lady says they are the best peanut butter cookies she ever had. Like any cookie, just don't over bake if you like soft cookies."

"Good cookies considering there are only 3 ingredients! I followed jnc41's suggestions and was very pleased with the results. SO easy, like falling off a log--quick satisfaction of a peanut butter cookie craving. I added about 3/4 c. sugar, half of it white and half of it brown."
