There are quite a few reviews for this recipe on this site already. However I felt inclined to put a review in since this particular listing of the recipe said there aren't any reviews and I'd hate to see anyone miss out on this wonderful, easy, and so kid friendly recipe. I measure, my kids mix and the best part is their getting to get all their fingers in there and smush them around in the dough. Then when it's time to bake them they once again get to literally dig their hands into it when they roll the dough into balls and roll them in the sugar. Then the very best part is when the cookies come out of the oven and they get to take all the kisses I made them unwrap (and not eat) and they get to push them down in the center of each cookie. They both feel like they are solely responsible for the wonderful treats they helped create! So if you are looking for a quick, easy, no-fool, recipe that you can let the entire family participate in making not just eating this one is one of the best!!!


These cookies are fantastic! When I finished mixing the batter I thought, what...no baking soda, baking powder or salt......NO FLOUR? But let me tell ya the ease of this recipe is notig cmpared to the great taste! I flattened mine out with a sugared bottom glass and bam! Awesome cookies. Oh, I also added 1 cup od dark chocolate chips. One thing you have to watch for is over baking. If you wait for them to turn golden brown, they are burnt on the bottom. They are a very light blonde almost when done. OH YUM!


Okay I had to try these because there was such a discrepancy between people's opinions. I thought they were great. Not a traditional cookie texture almost a cross between a peanut butter cookie and a peanut butter ball. DON'T overcook, the sugar is browning on the bottom and they are best when just barely done!
