I bake these crispy yet chewy peanut butter cookies often. My grandchildren, both near and far, can't wait to dig into the cookie jar. —Lois Bowman, Swanton, Maryland

    Delicious Peanut Butter cookie. I agree with the poster who said they couldn't taste the maple. I suspected that 1 tablespoon would not be enough to taste it... so I added 2 tablespoons and still could not taste it. Good cookie other than that. It made just over 6 dozen for me.

    The PERFECT cookie texture. Next time I think I will cut out the maple syrup.... I don't taste it. This is a GREAT peanut butter cookie though. I may try with chocolate chips or chocolate chip peanut butter swirl chips next time for something different. This is the PERFECT base for any peanut butter cookie you want. They are so perfect. Crispy on the outside chewy in the middle. They are LOVELY! Thank you SO much! I am keeping this recipe :)
