i made these today and they were good. I would have enjoyed a bit more crunch and depth of peanut flavor so next time I will use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth. I will also use dark brown sugar to give them a deeper golden color.
This is the recipe I chose to try. No need to ever look further. Delicious! Just the taste and texture I recall from my days of baking for my kids. Even loved by my friends here in Italy ( they generally prefer Nutella)!
Been looking for a recipe forever and this is the best one yet! They turned out perfect! I also read all your tips ahead of time- super helpful! These will become a staple in our house, thanks for the great recipe!
Dough is chilling in fridge. My question is…can I chill the dough overnight? Do I need to set it out for some time, before I bake them the following day?
Hi Syl, yes you can chill the dough overnight, and no, you shouldn’t let the dough sit out before baking.
Please advise how to store. These
Cookies. In refrigerator or room temp
Hi Karen, I’ve always just stored them at room temp.
These are delicious!! I love to bake and have made many, many cookies. These are one of the best. Very addictive. They are one of my cookies for a Christmas cookie swap.
These cookies are mild in.your mouth. Delicious, I had to make another batch for Christmas because I couldn’t stop eating them. This is definitely my peanut butter recipe from now on. I gave it to.my cousin also. Love ,love,love these cookies.
They were awesome cookies. I didn’t like having the 3 hour wait, so why it was chilling I made some other cookies. I’m making like 8 different kinds for Christmas. Thank you!
very good just made these last night
Great flavor and texture! I added another couple tablespoons of peanut butter and rolled the balls in sugar before pressing with a fork. Didn’t want to wait 3 hours for the dough to chill so I rolled them, put them on a parchment lined cookie sheet, flattened slightly with a fork and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Love this recipe!
Just made these today and a little disappointing. Thought they’d be more peanut buttery. I’m not a great cookie baker and that could be reason.
These are amazing. Just made them and they came together really quickly. I did not chill the dough, didn’t add the criss-cross marks (because I had a craving I wanted satisfied quickly!) and while they spread a bit, they taste PERFECT. I baked for around 9 minutes at 375 and they were soft but had crisp edges.
I made the cookies and used the 300F/15 minutes baking time. Cookie turned out delicious and chewy. Thank you!
I tried using the sugar idea but it didn’t help me in preventing the dough from coming out.
I removed the cookies from the pan as soon as it came out of the oven.
I also had the dough in the freezer for a couple of days.
Delish only I used half butter half crisco.
These cookies are like OMG cookies. Thank you !!!!
I was disappointed. Tasted more like Sugar Cookies with a slight hint of Peanut butter. Bummer!
Hi Jonas, that is weird. Perhaps it’s the brand of peanut butter you are using? This has been one of our most popular recipes for many years and the cookies definitely have a strong peanut butter flavor.
I absolutely loved this recipe! I did tweak it just a bit by adding 1/2 vanilla but other than that it was a hit at my house!
They are the best ever! My husband is hooked! Eell, we are hooked, the grands too, even grandma! We love them! Wasy to go Elise! You Rock!
