Easy and tasty. Needed something to bake without going to supermarket. All ingredients are things you always have on hand. Will definitely make again.

Delicious and very easy recipe. I also doubled the amount of peanut butter to add more flavour. Light and crispy texture - better than any other recipe I've tried.

Very tasty! A local bakery has gluten-free PB which are crispier than these. Any suggestions for variations to this recipe to increase crispness?

Hi Jean, there are a few things you can do to make a crisper cookie. Have dough at room temperature rather than chilled - the dough will spread more as it bakes producing a cookie that is crisper. Press the dough down on a greased cookie sheet rather than leaving the drop cookie in a ball on the sheet. Bake the cookies 1 to 2 minutes longer than what the recipe states, but the cookies may brown quickly so watch them carefully.
