    these cookies are delicious! but when I made them the mix seemed dry and didn't spread at all, pushed it down and helped some. I will add a little milk next time. Also I think I will try them some Nutela between. I love chocolate with PB

    The only problem with this recipe is that you will want to eat all of them and/or your family will eat them all before you get to sample one! Absolutely delicious!

    Lots of work but worth it. Do you think put together cookies can be frozen?

    These are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever made. They are so rich and delicious. I'm a true peanut butter lover and will never make any other peanut butter cookie recipe again. Everyone loves them.
