The recipe is super easy but peanut butter cookies should taste like pillows of peanut butter. These taste like cooked or burnt sugar with the after taste of peanut butter.

These were so simple and tasted great. My family would prefer them a little less sweet so I will cut down on the sugar next time and definitely only bake 8-10 min. and not the full 18 min. As others suggested we too prefer the traditional peanut butter cookies made with flour, but these are wonderful when time is short.

This recipe is so quick and easy to prepare! Although we prefer the taste of "traditional" peanut butter cookies, when I'm in a hurry, this is the recipe I reach for. My family has always enjoyed them!

Just okay - I love how easily these go together but the dough is really greasy feeling due to the peanut butter and they basically spread out to a very thin cookie while baking -- yes they are tasty and were a hit but in no way did they look like the picture. I even tried chilling part of the dough so that they wouldn't spread so much but it didn't help. I baked them on parchment paper too.

I followed Jnc41 advice. These cookies were easy and delicious! The key is to make them small. They will get larger as they bake. They are very fragile.

Is this a flourless recipe?

I have been making this recipe for years and I LOVE it! I have never had a problem with them crumbling so it must make a difference with the pan you bake on. I only bake them on stoneware and have never had a problem. They come out soft and will stay soft by putting in an air tight container. Everyone always asks for this recipe when I share them and can't believe how simple they are to make. My only change is the baking time to 13 min. Yummy!

My 12 year old makes these all the time. They are perfect. One lady says they are the best peanut butter cookies she ever had. Like any cookie, just don't over bake if you like soft cookies.

Good cookies considering there are only 3 ingredients! I followed jnc41's suggestions and was very pleased with the results. SO easy, like falling off a log--quick satisfaction of a peanut butter cookie craving. I added about 3/4 c. sugar, half of it white and half of it brown.
