Reviews for Peanut Butter Cutout Cookies
"i tried it and it tastes awesome"
"I made this and it was a huge hit! I want to make it again, but I don't need 4 1/2 dozen.Can you provide the measurements to only yield 12-14 cookies?"
"I enjoyed these cookies although the taste was very mild. I would have liked a stronger peanut butter flavor. When they first set up they were hard but then softened after settin in a covered container."
"Tasteless! I registered just to leave this review. Flour-tasting and dense. Salvaged the batter by adding 4T butter and a 1/4c brown sugar. Better, but not worth making this recipe again. I was making bone shaped cookies for human consumption to celebrate my puppy's first birthday - I literally fed the first batch of cookies to my dog! He liked them, but don't make them for human friends!"
"a good cookie.. not one of my favourites tho.."
"Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it is wonderful and just what I was lookin for."
"These are great! I placed jelly between two cookies and they tasted just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich."
"I love this recipe! The peanut butter flavor is very subtle so it still tastes very much like sugar cookies should... just with a wonderful twist!"
