This is a great recipes but I did make a few revisions to make it even better. Instead of two cup white sugar I used 1 cup white and one cup brown, I also only used used one tsp baking powder. The recipe creates a firm dough and maintains is "criss cross" shape. well. This one is a keeper! Thanks!

I've been making these for years. (The recipe I have calls for just one egg, and no salt or soda.) The quality of the peanut butter makes a big difference in how these turn out. Since I make these for a friend who is a celiac, I use an old-fashion pb that is made with just ground peanuts. The cookies are much tastier than ones made with pb that has oil, sugar, mono- and di-glycerides and such. I've discovered a few things that make these easier to make. I don't measure the peanut butter, I just use an entire 18 ounce jar. I line the cookie sheet with aluminum foil, I don't try to move individual cookies to the cooling rack, I just slide the foil on to the cooling racks. I usually make a BIG batch of dough (2 or 3 jars) and shape most of the dough into 2 inch diameter rolls, wrap in foil and freeze. They keep for several months. When I'm ready to bake then, I let the dough thaw just a bit and slice it into 1/4 in slices and bake as usual.

This is a great recipe for peanut butter cookies, but I have to rate it only 4 stars because of the changes I make to get the best results. I cannot emphasize enough...NATURAL peanut butter. And not that new "natural-no-stir" garbage. Also, the sugar is a bit much for my taste, so I do as other reviewers and decrease by half a cup. If you're having trouble getting the consistency you want, don't be afraid to throw in a couple tablespoons of flour. White chocolate chunks will make an unforgettable combo. Again, I cannot emphasize enough, NATURAL peanut butter – the results will literally melt in your mouth.
