I made these cookies at 350 temp for about 12 mins. I like soft chewy cookies. These cookies were very dry and kinda tasteless. I even added more peanut butter and some milk as other reviews suggested. That didn’t help. Cookies crumble while trying to eat them. My dogs loved them but my family did not. Now I have 3 dozen cookies that will go to the trash. I won’t be making these cookies again. I’ll stick to my Grandma’s recipe.
