I have made these cookies a couple times with a slight variation. I use honey instead of corn syrup and peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. My husband who is a firefighter takes them to the station and they are gone in a flash. If you have a peanut butter fan in the family they will love these.

Soooo good!! Thanks for the recipe. Finally a biscuit that actually does stays soft in the middle, just the way I like it! Cheers :)

Amazing cookies!! I made two dozen and they were gone in 24 hours! I did slightly adjust the recipe and added more butter. Thank you so much for this recipe! They have become a quick favourite in my house!

I made these cookies, but I could barely taste the peanut butter. They were still delicious though!:D

I made these yesterday. They were soft when I took them out of the oven, but they are hard today. And, I could barely taste the peanut butter, which made my man happy,but I love peanut butter,so they weren't the greatest for me.

I agree, can hardly taste the peanut butter but otherwise yummy! I hope they don't turn hard tomorrow though! Very simple to make b/c I don't bake & they turned out great!
