If I were to rate on flavor alone I would rate it a 5. If you are going to use this recipe you really need to pay attention to them because they can easily overbake. The recipe says to take them out when the edges turn a light brown, but in my experience the edges never changed color. I was afraid I was going to underbake them so I kept waiting for them to change and they didn't. I finally took them out and the overbaked product was crumbly. With the next batch I just took them out at 9 minutes and they turned out great. So watch your time, not the edges!

these cookies are awesome. I did alter them a bit though. First, I added 3/4 cup peanutbutter (instead of 1/2). I used 1/2 cup honey in the place of sugar like someone else recommended. Plus I also replaced 3/4 cup of flour with oats. The result was really soft and peanutbuttery cookies. I took them to a party and someone said "Hope your are not expecting to leave with any of these"

The cookies were good but definately needed more peanut butter in them. First off, I hate it when people rate the recipe based off of their version!! Please do not rate recipes unless you have tried them exactly as written. Otherwise post your own recipe with the changes you thought were better. It's very annoying to look through recipes and find a million different versions and rated randomly. I want to know what people thought of this particular recipe...not yours!!!
