"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."
