These cookies are fabulous! I substituted butter for the shortening and 2% milk for the buttermilk and they turned out perfectly.


This is a great cookie! I've never eaten, let alone made, peanut butter cookies before, but these are brilliant and easy to make. They taste peanut buttery, but light and unusually for eggless cookies there is no baking soda aftertaste! I used margarine instead of shortening, semi-skimmed milk + 1 tsp vinegar [for buttermilk] and only half the salt. I baked at 180C for 11mins in a fan oven and they came out chewy in the middle and crispy at the edges. I also froze half the mix to bake later as it made about 50 cookies. Next time I might try it with crunchy peanut butter. I'm going to add a photo so you can see how they came out.


Good cookies. I couldn't stop eating them. I did find that there was not enough flour in the recipe. Need at least a 1/2 cup more.
