Very dry and crumbly. I have no idea why this recipe has 4 stars or why it's still up on the website. I didn't realize how bad this recipe was until I got close to the end of making it, then I saw the comments below. So.... If any of you made my mistake and didn't read the comments ahead of time, do what a previous poster suggested and bake at 350 for only 10 minutes. They'll still be pretty crumbly but they still taste good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
the absolute worst cookies! I had to throw them away. This recipe should be taken down so people do not waste their time. I should have know....but was trusting the site and gave it a try. item not reviewed by moderator and published
No bueno. Wish I had used some brown sugar,,dumped the whole batch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I decided to take some of the suggestions below into account and my cookies turned out pretty awesome. To start I used 1/2 cup regular and 1/2 cup brown sugar, then added one cup peanut butter to the creamed sugar/butter mixture, followed by two eggs, then the rest of the recipe as originally outlined. I then baked these at 350 degrees for 13 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet and they turned out pretty perfect. The only thing I might change for next time is not rolling the dough balls in sugar before placing/flattening on the cookie sheet, but that's more personal preference as I tend to not like things that sweet and didn't affect the overall texture of the cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously one of the worst cookie recipes I've ever tried. Anyone who made a batch that turned out great must have spiked them with ganja. My dogs loved them though. Not fit for human consumption! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. I made a few changes. I used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar, added extra peanut butter, lowered the temp to 350, and only baked for 10-11 mins. Also, I creamed the peanut butter with the sugar and butter until fluffy. The secret to great cookies is keeping an eye on them. They came out excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Came out too dry. I would add more egg or butter, or something because its like eating dirt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it with an extra egg. Very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this recipe didn't work for me; the cookies burnt after 12 minutes in the oven and expanded 2-3 times the initial size. I had to throw them all away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
