    Turned out great! I made more than the recipe’s expected 20 cookies. Also used a bit more salt than recommended, and sprinkled the leftover sugar over the cookies before baking. My Lovely Wife said, “ I hate you. These are perfect.” LoL

    They were good they could be left i there probably for 15 min I did for 12 and were a little under cooked

    Not super sweet, which is great. I substituted 1 c flour with 1/3 c coconut flour and used Jif pb. Probably could have added more salt and peanutbutter to give it a stronger flavor. I've definitely had better peanutbutter cookies but this wasn't too bad.

    Ehh. They were good. But very very dry and needed more peanut butter flavor. I added more peanut butter and milk to my second batch to make them a little more moist.

    Easy but slightly too sweet. I would definitely reduce the sugar. Texture is perfect. The chopped hazelnuts I added fit great as well!

    great, wish they were not as crunchy and more chewy, I'll tweak it next time.

    Made them with crunchy peanut butter and added chocolate chips, also didn't do the sugar coating. Turned out amazing! The family loves them. Next time I would add less sugar and use dark chocolate chips as they are quite sweet. But overall they are soo delicious 🤤

    I do not suggest adding the sugar coating at the end because there is more than enough sugar. I did not use all of the butter that I was told to, and the cookies still came out good. This is a great, relatively quick baking recipe. Thanks!

    Great taste just a little dry kind of like a biscuit. I wonder if it would be more chewy with milk? Edit: I made some more, adding a little milk helps them become softer

    My batter came out very whipped like, not dough like. I was able to drop blobs of batter onto the pan and still turned out great and wonderful tasting! I sprinkled sugar on top halfway through the baking since I couldnt roll them in it, still worked great! Husband and Kids apprpved, def will make again! BTW the honey really bringa out the sweet and PB taste!!!

    I think they could be a bit smaller, but that's just preference. They taste amazing and were easy to make. Definitely recommend.

    Directions were clear and easy to follow, they came out great and were easy to make. I would have keep them in the oven alittle longer than 12 min. so that they might have come out slightly crisper, they are so soft, the chewy part didn't really come out for me. Maybe after they sit longer. Will make again.
