My family loves peanut butter, and these cookies are so gooey, it's almost like eating peanut butter and chocolate. We reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup, and use natural peanut butter. We also bake on a baking stone, and let the cookies sit for about 10 min before carefully moving to a cooling rack.

Ive been using this recipe for about a year now and I figured out a way to make them stick with out flour. My mom had this package of caramel from the frozen pie she bought. I added a big glob of that. Oddly enough I can not taste the caramel in the cookies but it makes them crisp instead of soft

This is a tried and true peanut butter cookie recipe. With the addition of a chocolate kiss they also look amazing! However, in terms of crumbled cookie- I have always removed the cookies about 4 minutes early and set the kiss in place and returned to over. This allows the cookie to bake up around the kiss. Now that kisses come in many flavors, we have tried peanut butter, dark chocolate....all good.

Eating the batter raw was the better part of the experience. When baked they fell apart and were too fragile, the whole texture wasn't the right combo, and even under baking them didn't keep the edges from getting crispy. Will be looking for another recipe.
