"Whoa are these good!! This recipe is a keeper! I don't make huge cookies but I did get 100 out of the single recipe. I didn't have peanut butter chips on hand so I used half milk chocolate chips and half semi sweet chips. Other than that, I made the recipe like stated. Ian thank you for sharing your recipe! I think the next I make these I will add some chopped pecans as well!"

"These are excellent! My family loves these cookies and I will definitely be making them again. I like the slightly crisp outside paired with the chewy inside. Adding the peanut butter chips adds a little extra something. It does make quite a few cookies, so if you are fixing them for a crowd it would be perfect. I think we will try using these for s'mores tonight!"

"These melt in your mouth and they didn't last long in the cookie jar. I made mine with a Teaspoon rather than a Tablespoon as I wanted smaller cookies. I also didn't have any choc. chips so I use chopped almonds. Awesome. Next time I am going to try them with crushed M&Ms."

"Taste was OK, but cookies were very flat! I checked the date on my soda and it is good until Sept 2020! So I guess that was OK! The only thing I did different was the chips--all I had was dark choc. chips.

I just read all the reviews and am convinced that I did something wrong--I will get the right chips and a new box of soda, and new flour and try again! Maybe use the butter crisco in place of butter as suggested by someone else. They are worth trying again! Thanks."

"These are outrageously good! They have the perfect texture that I love: not flat, not cakey, not dry, not greasy. Just perfectly chewy with just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. The tops even crack in just the perfect way to make them look as beautiful as bakery bought but without the fake flavor of commercial made cookies. Wonderful! I have used dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and I also tried once with Reese's die for!"

(I researched and they say that using butter flavored Crisco, in equal amounts to the butter in this recipe, will make these cookies thick. I will try that next time) The flavor of these cookies is outstanding !"
