    Good tasting cookies!! I added an extra 1/4 cup peanut butter and used french vanilla creamer instead of milk. I cooked my cookies for 9 mins and let them rest. A little crunch on edges but soft middle. Will cook again.

    Turned out perfectly. They are moist on the inside while still being a little crumbly on the outside.

    I left cookies in for a bit longer than 11 minutes because they were not lightly browned. But they were very good and held up nicely when baked. Definately will bake again.

    They tasted wonderful but seemed too flaky. I’m not sure if the flour amount was too much.

    Love these! Just enough crunch on the outside, but soft chewy centers. I used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy. So delicious! My favorite peanut butter cookie recipe by far.
    Perfect! Easy! I left out the vanilla extract and they taste just fine! I baked about 7 minutes longer because we like them a little more crisp!!!

    AMAZING! Followed this recipe EXACTLY and they were gone so fast! Quick three ingredient peanut butter cookies can't compare. Use the extra ingredients and you won't be sorry you did!
