  1. Just made these. Delicious! Very light for a peanut butter cookie. I love peanut butter, but usually peanut better cookies are too dense for my taste. These are perfect. I always shape my cookies and flash freeze them before baking. Is there a reason not to?

  2. I made these Monday night, baked some and flash froze the rest (after shaping them). I just baked a few more of the flash frozen ones today and they turned out beautifully.Oh, and I absolutely love these! So much better than the traditional peanut butter cookies.

  3. I was just coming back to say that flash freezing them before baking works great. I put them out on the pan while preheating the oven and they really don’t even take much longer to bake. Great cookie!

    1. Yes, you should be able to ship them as long as the delivery time isn’t super long. Some suggestions for packing are to layer the cookies between paper towels and then wrap with bubble wrap so they don’t break.

    1. You can definitely use crunchy peanut butter, but I would go ahead and still leave the amount of butter the same. Be sure to let us know how they turn out!
