"My hubby asked me to bake some cookies for him to take to work, I gave these a try. One word, delicious. My hubby liked them so much he said "these are too good for me to take to work". Except for doubling the recipe I made exactly as written. I did take the advice of one reviewer and allowed the cookies to cool, on the cookie sheet, before transferring to a cooling rack, I had no problem at all with crumbling. Will definitely be making these again."

"Excellent cookie with good peanut butter flavor. I used hershey mini kisses in place of semi sweet chips. I also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose. They turned out lovely. I think it is a good size batch."

As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Hime I enjoy recipes that use classic ingredients with a new twist."

"I baked these cookies this PAST week and took them into the hospital for the volunteer office. This recipe I have used in times past as well! It's a really great recipe to use when cookies are needed for any special occasion! I used quick oats, 1/2 cup each packed brown sugar & granulated sugar, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips & 1/2 cup peanut butter chips to enhance the flavor. I also used 1/2 tsp. salt & 1 Tbsp. corn syrup when creaming the butter and sugars together! I used creamy peanut butter instead of chunky and the cookies came out well! I also greased the baking sheets for easier removal of the cookies. I rate this as an excellent cookie recipe to use ANYTIME! NOTE: I baked these cookies again 7/18/14. I'd used this time: 1 cup of multi-colored baking chips ("Springtime" Nestle's baking chips in chocolate, pink and yellow). I baked the cookies 8 minutes! The first batch I had baked 10 minutes, but found them to be more browned than was needed! So I scaled the time to 8 minutes and to me, the time worked out better! These continue to be a 5* rating! delowenstein"
