Reviews for Peanut Butter-Filled Cookies
"This is probably a good recipe, and I am gonna do it, but where did all these fleas come from? I don't know why they beat you up so bad, and i don't know why they let it go on...........Not comin' here again.........."
"I am scared of this site....you have too many people, acting like stupid...I am sorry....don't know if I will return........."
"I made this cookie using Splenda and because I have to be gluten free, I used my gluten free flour. I found it very tasty and it worked for the family and me. It's a keeper."
"Very easy to make. We love peanut butter and chocolate in our house so this was a perfect fit."
"The flavor of the cookies was good. However, I found them time consuming to make."
"Loved them. Nice peanut butter flavor. I would double the cookie dough part but not the filling. This will yield close to 4 dozen cookies then."
"Although my husband and I are diabetic, I do indeed modify recipes to meet our needs or I take just one. I don't understand people who are so rigid about something because it doesn't meet their criteria. You'd probably be better off if you didn't voice your opinion."
"While this wasn't a terrible recipe, it didn't knock our socks off either. Nothing special but could cure a sweet tooth. We had to reduce baking to 4-5 minutes."
"This recipe sounds SO good! Surely you diabetic folks have learned to modify recipes to meet YOUR needs of to by-pass them altogether. No need to give them a bad rating or make them sound lethal just because they so not suit you!!"
