"The PERFECT cookie texture. Next time I think I will cut out the maple syrup.... I don't taste it. This is a GREAT peanut butter cookie though. I may try with chocolate chips or chocolate chip peanut butter swirl chips next time for something different. This is the PERFECT base for any peanut butter cookie you want. They are so perfect. Crispy on the outside chewy in the middle. They are LOVELY! Thank you SO much! I am keeping this recipe :)"
