    Did it for my family. I opted out light brown sugar and sugar to roll the dough on so it is less sweet for my toddler and it still taste good! I added in Hersheys Chocolate Chips because my husband likes it. I didn't roll them in consistent shape though but the taste is good :)

    They were amazing my family loved them! A bit on the dry side and they didn't spread out that much but still tasty. I will bake them again.

    I thought they were absolutely scrumptious, souper chewy round the edges, then a soft melt in your moth middle! I'd recommend adding a little Peanut butter in the centres, to add a little extra gooeyness and excitement!

    My family loved these, they couldn’t say enough great things about them. Followed ingredients, added cross hatch with a fork. On a side note: buttering the cookie sheet cristalized the sugar which added greatness to the texture and flavor. I’m a huge fan

    Mine baked well too hot to try right now but the dough was tasty. I added more peanut butter and less butter by 1/4 cup. Otherwise stuck to the recipe...

    I made fantastic cookies, whole family loved it. It was soft and delicious after 4-5 days as well. I added little more peanut butter (25% crunchy, 75% creamy), and a little less butter, and also added a little ginger and cardamon for a little spicy feeling, but anyway it worked well this way also. :) thank you! Awesome!

    Turned out good but too much sugar for my taste and not very peanuty. They did not look like the picture at all. But the most important my family liked it so its not a bad recipe

    This was good and I would make it again gladly. Had a really crumby texture and the boys loved it. A little to sweet for my taste though. Did not look the same as the picture at all. . . .

    Delicious and super easy - I had everything in my pantry. Use chunky peanut butter for extra crunch!
