Obviously, the blog post was correct - they really don't spread much. This is a picture from after the cookies were taken out of the oven. After this batch, I tried smashing the cookies down with a fork, as you would do with normal peanut butter cookies, but the dough just got stuck in between the prongs, so that didn't work as well as I would've liked. I, personally, don't think the smashed-down-cookie look appears to be all that appetizing.
As the blogger had done, I made a double batch of these cookies and oh-mama did I have too many cookies! But, that's ok. It's always better to have too much than not enough, I suppose.
A friend of mine had one of these cookies before I brought them to home group to make sure that they were good enough to share (since my tummy hasn't been liking me much, I needed someone else's opinion). She (and my husband) both felt that the cookies were ok but left you feeling very parched.
If you make these cookies, be ready to have a tall glass of milk (or the beverage of your choice) available, otherwise you may not receive the full enjoyment these cookies have to offer.
I don't know that I'll be making these cookies again. I have other peanut butter cookie recipes that I could probably add ingredients to that may be better than these - but they were still worth a trial and they weren't a disaster. And, from what I heard, the folks in our home group seemed to enjoy them as well...or so they said... hehe.
Still...a cookie is a cookie - as long as there are no nuts or raisins. So, I'd say these turned out a-ok.
