  1. I halved the recipe, used a medium cookie scoop, and got a little over 30 cookies, so it’s pretty accurate. Also – I’d suggest that if you want a very peanutty cookie to not use natural PB and also to up the amount above what’s called for. It was a bit more subtle than I was expecting.

  2. I made mine already as I’ll be on vacation, so I made them ahead of time and will prepare the post to publish on Tuesday. These were a HUGE hit with the people i served these too. I made the full recipe and got about 50 cookies – mine were on the larger side. Mine spread a lot and were big, flat cookies, but they do taste great. They’re very hearty. I used Skippy Extra Chunky PB.

  3. We made these and they turned out great! They did not have a very peanutty flavor, but as some one else said if you want that use the natural peanut butter, next time I think we will.

  4. I made these and they were surprisingly good. Im not a huge fan of peanut butter cookies but it was quite subtle. I liked how they were nice and crunchy.

  5. Reese’s PB chips were on sale this week near us, so I bought a bag to up the PB flavor. Can’t wait to bake them tonight! DH is also super excited.

  6. Beware concrete-like dough: I let my dough sit refrigerated for about 24 hours as suggested (and as per recent NY Times article.) It turned out hard as a rock, was very dry and actually broke my scooper :( Using the remains of the medium scoop, I got over 50 cookies.

  7. I liked these. Mine turned out fairly flat and I was wondering if I should have let them chill longer (only chilled the dough for an hour) but I guess I’m glad it wasn’t overnight, considering the above warning about rock-hard dough. I thought it was a great blend of PB cookies, oatmeal, and chocolate chip. I liked the subtle PB taste, but I think they would also be good with peanut chips to boos the peanut factor. I would definitely make these again!

  8. I was actually pretty disappointed in these! The cookies came out very dry. I can’t think of what I did incorrectly, but they are pretty crumbly, and not in the good way :-(
    The batter was good, so I’m not sure what happened. Did this happen to anyone else?

  9. oh my.. rock hard cookies? tt sounds like a pretty good warning. hmph..the cookie batter taste great though! will be baking mine up in awhile! Can’t wait.

  10. My cookies turned out really well – good shape and texture. I added peanut butter chips and wish I hadn’t. I also subbed a few tablespoons of extra peanut butter for some of the butter, which was good. I did half with dried fruit instead of chocolate and they were excellent.

  11. Mine are a little bit better this morning. Hey, nothing wrong with a cookie for breakfast! I had to taste it…for scientific reasons. They “settled” or whatever, overnight and aren’t as dried out. Not sure what happened, but there ya go.

  12. I made these yesterday, they came out great, much better than I expected. They were definitely a little flat, but they were soft and chewy, and the flavor was great!

  13. I added a bit of baking powder to mine and used 1/2 c. butter 1/2 c. crisco, so mine weren’t flat at all…The only problem I had is I think I chilled it too long and it was a bit crumbly. I got them together though and my hubby and roommate loved them..I used PB chips and a few white chocolate chips along w/ the choc.

  14. Just pulled my third batch out of the oven and put my fourth in. My oven is really tiny, so I can only bake about 7 cookies at one time…

    Nibbling on a cookie from my first batch… They are great, the peanut butter taste is really subtle though.

  15. I forgot oatmeal at the grocery yesterday. I’ll have to go back today or tomorrow. Im wicked excited for the Whoppers next week too. I love all the cookies! (And beware, there are more coming up. muahahha!)

  16. Ok, so I cannot keep my fingers out of the cookie dough! The only thing keeping them out is putting the dough back into the fridge while the batch is baking! OMG, I have died and gone to heaven (or maybe hell for eating raw cookie dough). These are AWESOME.

  17. I used Whole Foods natural PB (chunky) & the cookies were terrific. I cut back the butter by almost 50% & used 1/2 cup less sugar. I did add about 2T extra flour at the end to stiffen the dough since someone said her cookies were flat. I added coconut & bits of a milk chocolate bar. Used WW pastry flour. Two test cookies (made balls & flattened them a bit) were fine so I made the rest, chilling the dough while one batch baked. 32 large chewy cookies. This brand of PB had larger pieces of nuts – they look nice in the cookies & add flavor & crunch.

  18. I baked these last night. I didn’t have 2 hours to chill, so I put the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then I plopped them onto a cookie sheet and chilled them in the freezer while the oven preheated (about 20 minutes). Judging by the look of the dough, I knew they were going to spread so I only did 9 per sheet. Then again I did somewhat big scoops. Chilling is highly recommended because they will spread! Mine came out fine (not rock hard, not crumbly, etc) although I can really taste the cinnamon.

  19. I liked the cookies as well but wish the pb flavor was more pronounced. I used a 2 tablespoon disher which made about 38 cookies and combined some semisweet with the bittersweet chocolate.

  20. All done and had good results. Mine didn’t spread at all,. I halved the recipe and the yield was 27 cookies. More than enough. The predominant taste is cinnamon – not a bad thing – and of course the predominant texture is oats! LOL

  21. Hi All:
    Well, this is my first week on TWD! Glad to be a part of such a great online community!

    FYI, mine have a great PB taste–I used half creamy and half chunky PB (JIF brand for both) if that helps…

    Though, I think the cinnamon is competing a bit with the PB…Regardless, I’m LOVING these cookies–and they are getting rave reviews at my house!

  22. I was slightly disappointed, but only slightly, that mine didn’t turn out as chubby as I expected. They were, however, delicious. I am actually looking forward to the weekend, not because of any grand plans, but because I can’t wait until I can make the Chocolate Malted Whooper Drops!

  23. Nice post. I learn something tougher on different blogs everyday. It would all the time be stimulating to read content material from different writers and observe somewhat something from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
