When my mother (who's now a great-grandmother) gave me this no-flour peanut butter cookie recipe about 15 years ago, I was skeptical, because it calls for only three ingredients (and no flour?!). But since then I've never had a failure, and I make them all the time! —Maggie Schimmel, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

"Tried making this for the first time yesterday. Followed the directions pretty closely and since I read the comments beforehand I added vanilla extract to the mixture. I put chocolate chips in a circular mound in the middle and I think that’s what made it taste much better. I like this recipe because it’s easy and pretty inexpensive to make. I was told it was too rich and “like a whole meal” by the first person I had try it. I like the flavor and it looks and tastes like a peanut butter cookie. If you don’t like peanut butter you probably should not make this. Would recommend trying this recipe because it is almost foolproof."

"OK, but not great. Seemed a little bland. Needed salt? I added vanilla, but not enough. Also only needs to bake 10-12 minutes. Peanut butter cookies made with gluten free flour taste better, I think."

"I made these with chunky peanut butter and topped it with a few chocolate chips. Very easy to make and tastes wonderful."

"I have been making these Peanut Butter cookies since the 90s and they are the best PB cookie recipe I have ever tried. I did make a couple alterations, I add 1 tsp of vanilla for the flavor and I bake for only 10-15 minutes (usually 12 minutes). They are soft and chewy, never crumbly and NEVER gritty (no idea what would make this cookie gritty as one comment said unless she added to much sugar and or coarse sugar and under baked). When I have baked them longer (because I forgot to set the timer) they are crunchy but not crumbly and they haven't fallen apart.. Oh and they make for a really great Ice Cream sandwich too, because the cookie is soft, you don't break your teeth when you eat it, YUM.

Everyone that has ever tried this cookie has loved or at the very least liked them, even people that aren't that fond of peanut butter. Yes this recipe is that good. You really need to try it, but don't bake it for the 18 minutes that's just to long."

"Instead of using sugar, substitute the same amount of Splenda or other sugar substitute. Voila! You have a great treat for Diabetics."

"I made these with 1/2 c. Truvia baking Mix instead of sugar. I also added a tsp. baking soda and the texture was better."

"These were okay, but not as good as regular pb cookie recipes. Crumbled easy and had a grainy taste. I'm sticking with tried and true recipe. Amazing though it only took 3 ingredients. Would make in a pinch. Always have those ingredients on hand."

"I was really skeptical about only 3 ingredients but they're good! I also used brown sugar and cut it down to half a cup and put one chocolate chip on top."
