These cookies are great; they are extremely moist and peanut buttery.

I also thought the mix was a little crumbly, however, I just added a 1/4 c. more PB and they turned out great!! Baked for 9 minutes and they were nice and chewy. A keeper!

I used butter instead of shortening. The cookies turned out well. Not very peanut buttery, I would recommend using more peanut butter than the recipe calls for.

Great cookie. I wanted peanut butter cookies but had no butter, so I chose this since it used shortening. These have a mild peanut butter taste, so if you are looking for peanut butter overload, look elsewhere. I halfed all of the ingredients, and it ended up yielding 18 decent sized cookies. I lined my cookie sheet with parchment and 9 minutes was perfect for these. A nice soft and chewy cookie - not sure what the other reviewers are doing wrong to end up with dry cookies. This is a simple, fast and delicious recipe. I sprinkled them with a bit of sugar as soon as I took them out of the oven. Will definitely make again!
