    These cookies were AMAZING! The bottoms were brown while the insides were still a little mushy, but that could be because I added 1/2 cup mashed bananas. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a tablespoon of honey. SOOO good!!!

    Excellent taste and texture. I used 1/2 c brown sugar and only 1/4 c white and they were great. I didn't have any milk so I used vanilla coffee creamer - so good.

    It worked out, I added nuttela in the middle to make it a thumbprint.Amazing, and for the other half I added strawberry jam.

    Great! I’d like them a little crunchier so I’ll bake them longer next time. Great thickness and spread. The dough warmed quickly so I had to move fast but they’re delicious and hold their form well, not too crumbly.
    Loved by one and all

    Easy to make and quite good.. I used wholewheat flour instead of white so they were hearty as well

    Fantastic. These didn't crumble like my peanut butter cookies normally do. And the added peanut butter makes the flavor outstanding! Nice and crispy outside, and stay soft for days. My new go to recipe!
