These are very subtle in the peanut butter flavor but because of that you can still decorate them with frosting without it conflicting in flavors. They work great as a cutout cookie, just like a sugar cookie but without the butter, so to me it was a win.

I made this and it was a huge hit! I want to make it again, but I don't need 4 1/2 dozen.Can you provide the measurements to only yield 12-14 cookies?

I enjoyed these cookies although the taste was very mild. I would have liked a stronger peanut butter flavor. When they first set up they were hard but then softened after settin in a covered container.

Tasteless! I registered just to leave this review. Flour-tasting and dense. Salvaged the batter by adding 4T butter and a 1/4c brown sugar. Better, but not worth making this recipe again. I was making bone shaped cookies for human consumption to celebrate my puppy's first birthday - I literally fed the first batch of cookies to my dog! He liked them, but don't make them for human friends!

These are great! I placed jelly between two cookies and they tasted just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I love this recipe! The peanut butter flavor is very subtle so it still tastes very much like sugar cookies should... just with a wonderful twist!
