This is a great recipe. However, after mixing and baking, and finally trying one, I realized something was missing. Salt. It may not seem like such a big deal to omit the salt, but it makes a big difference in the flavor. It will enhance it, and cut some of the sweetness out, so you can enjoy the other flavors. I would probably put about half a teaspoon in it. It will make a great difference in the cookie, I promise.

Wow!!! . . . These are the best p.b. cookies I have ever made. I'm not a fan of cripy cookies and these turned out amazingly chewy and moist. I did add a couple extra things - 1/2 c. extra p.b., 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. vanilla - otherwise I followed the recipe (which was wonderfully simple) to a T. Will definately be making these again =)

I am always trying new peanut butter cookies, because I always seem to lose the ones I like. I made these, generous on the peanut butter (i usually add 1/4-1/3 c extra), and brought them to a teacher meeting. I expected to come home with some, but they were all gone by the end! I even got compliments on them at the next meeting! If you like them chewy, make sure to take them out of the oven once they are solidified but not brown yet.
