MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2015

"I have been making these cookies for years. Very easy. No need to wait for butter to soften. Originally saw this recipe on a Food Network Cooking Show that was submitted by a viewer. The exception was the addition of 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda. However, I made the following change....I use 1/2 Reduced Fat Peanut Butter and 1/2 Regular Peanut Butter. Using all regular peanut butter I found the cookies too dry. And using all reduced fat peanut butter resulted in cookies that spread too much. These changes can be attributed to companies removing sugar from regular peanut butter, resulting in changing the texture of these cookies. Have not tried using Natural Peanut Butter. I get many requests for this recipe every time I bring them to an event!"
