followed the recipe to the T. I questioned the amt. of vanilla but figured there must be a good reason why the 1 tbsp. Don't cut down on the vanilla...this amt. makes the cookie! I used a good Mexican vanilla and it really combined so well with the p.b. They are soft and light with a slight crispy edge. Thanks for the advice regarding not overbaking. They will not look done when you take them out but you can see them brown slightly around the edges right before your eyes as you let them sit on the sheet for a minute or two. Easy to slide right off the sheet without any greasy taste. Lovely cookie but if you have a houseful of cookie monsters, you might want to double the batch. This made 54 cookies with the pampered chef small size scoop.



Unlike the other users, I found this recipe not at all appealing. The cookies tasted like I put a spoonful of salt in my mouth. Perhaps the salt measurement was incorrectly typed at the website? 3/4 tsp. is a bit much.



Excellent! Have been using this recipe for years and they always come out perfect. Wonderful presentation and texture (they actually make me look like an accomplished baker). Suggest following the recipe including the 1T vanilla (great flavor), the crisco (don't use butter-it takes away from the texture). Cookies will not look finished after 7-8 min but take them out anyway. Suggested add: milk chocolate chunks.
