Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best PB Cookies Ever! These are amazing, but like a lot of you, I changed a couple of things. I don't enjoy crumbly cookies - added an additional egg and up'd the flower 1/4 cup. They were perfect, using extra crunchy pb. I've added dark chocolate chips to the batter for a change-up, and that was received very well. It's a KEEPER for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST peanut butter cookie you'll eat! I tried this recipe off the card of the shortening sticks I bought- they were awesome. I brought a batch to work and they were gone in a flash! Everyone told me they were perfect; and that I could bring them anytime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tasting peanut butter cookie I have ever had I found this recipe about one year ago. I have to double it as the cookies just go that fast in my home. I use the jif natural peanut butter. The flavor is out of this world. Try this recipe and you will not be disappointed !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from family favorite I've been baking these cookies for over 40 years and they never fail to be a crowd-pleaser! I never bake just a single recipe of these cookies because they are so versatile. My family loves to roll the unbaked 1-inch balls in coarse sugar then put on an unwrapped Hershey Kiss to make Peanut Blossoms, or to place the unbaked ball into a mini-tart pan and then to press an unwrapped Rollo caramel candy into it. There are so many ways like this we have made them over the years. It is so much fun to experiment. That's why Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies will continue to star in my cookie jar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love this peanut butter cookie recipe and have made them for years. They come out nice and soft and I love the taste. I have also used chunky peanut butter and that's good too.
