I think these are the easiest cookies I have ever made and they are tasty too, great with a glass of milk. Great cookies to let the kids help you with! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just got done making these cookies and they are great!!!! idk what your people are talking about? and to aviod them falling apart just put them in the freezer for about 15 mins. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read other reviews of this recipe and don't understand why so many had problems, if you follow directions it is fail proof. First I used a non-stick pan liner on the cookie sheet (so no sticking problem), secondly if you don't make the thumb indention real deep the cookie isn't going to be soft and thirdly if you follow directions about timing of baking and removing etc. they should not fall apart. This was very similar to another peanut butter recipe that I have used in the past were ingredients were only 1 egg, 1 c peanut butter and 1 cup of sugar however because you are using less sugar and baking soda you get a nice rise on the cookie and they are not sickening sweet. I was very pleased with the results I had. Delicious cookie, Rachel!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is missing the vanilla extract and granulated sugar. Someone should fix this before another person messes up another batch of cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made the Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies as the recipe appears on Rachel's site (, and they are awesome. Unfortunately, this recipe seems to be missing the flour and other ingredients...? If you want a good PB&J cookie recipe, though, check out the one on Rachel Ray's website--don't let her name on this recipe deter you from trying the other! :-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies turned into fist sized saucers in the oven. Completely flat and I couldn't get them off the sheet without making them into crumbled balls of dough. Won't try again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is very similar to another recipe I use all the time, except that it calls for 3/4 cup of brown sugar, chocolate chips and chopped peanuts. Form into balls as tight as you can, then flatten slightly after you put them on the pan. They are amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
my dog was eating because it made me sick and i had diarea so i gave i to my dog he died a short time later from cancer. but im sure these cookies gave it to him item not reviewed by moderator and published
I bake often, especially cookies and I tried this recipe as a change from the regular Peanut Butter Kiss cookies. For Christmas I bake 5-10 different varieties and this one was terrible. I wondered how it would stay together without any flour at all. It was a good question because they did NOT stay together. I followed the recipe exactly, and I wonder if Rachael ever made them because if she did she would have seen that they won't even come off the sheet. I wish I had read the other reviews before I wasted ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't believe I did anything wrong but something was missing from the cookie it probably may need some sugar instead of just the brown sugar. Also the jelly caused my cookies to melt...strange but true they melted in the oven and the part the jelly was on (aka the center) turned to heading is hmmm because I may have done something wrong otherwise sadly this was a failed cookie for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
