I just made these cookies last night and they are almost gone already. I followed one reviewer's suggestion of substituting the 1 1/4 cup brown sugar for 1 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar and then used a full cup of peanut butter and real butter instead of shortening. I also baked the cookies at 350 like most people suggested for about 10 minutes. I only made about 12 cookies from the batch (I like them pretty big) and I flattened the balls of dough out and pressed them with a fork before I baked them. They are undoubtedly the best PB cookies I've ever had. I'm making another batch tonight to share with my family! Follow the substitutions and I GUARANTEE you won't be disappointed!!

As the daughter of a french pastry chef and the granddaughter of an old world cookie connoiseur, I'm trained in the art of seperating the immaculate cookie from the rubbish cookie. These, friends, are immaculate cookies. I made two batches- one regular, and one with chopped peanuts, and both are delicious.

The BEST peanut butter cookie EVER. I modified the recipe though. I used 1 c. brown sugar and 1/3 c. white sugar. Also, used 1 c. peanut butter and replaced 1/4 c. of the shortening with butter. So moist and chewy and DELISH!!! To the people that think they are dry, you are baking them too long...
