This recipe was good!! I "healthified" it... I did half whole wheat flour and half regular, used splenda blend sugar, and smart balance peanut butter, and tub margarine (probably smart balance of best life .. something like that), brought it into work and didnt tell any coworkers that I used healthier ingredients and they loved it, ate it all up! I saved a couple at home for me and my husband and..yum! I love chocolate peanut butter!

You don't even know they are less fatting.

I will never make these again!!!

I followed the recipe exactly and let them cool overnight before cutting them. They were so crumbly, I could not get them out of the pan without them breaking. They also tasted like dust. Dry, crumbly, dust. The flavor would have been okay if the texture hadn't been so awful! I bake a lot and I am rarely disappointed in the result. However, this one I will not be baking again.

WOW! Just like grandma made only less sugar!

These are just like the ones my grandmother use to make. She always made them as her special treat to help us celebrate something. Now as a boarder line diabetic we have to be careful what we eat. This recipe is Perfect! Thanks!

doesnt taste lo-cal

I made this for our teacher appreciation dinner and the school bake sale. Everybody(even the kids) loved them. No one believed me that I used light and lo-cal/lo-carb ingredients. I am making this again tomorrow for a funeral and next week for my ladies group.

PLAIN AND SIMPLE

I MADE THESE FOR A SISTER IN LAW THAT ALWAYS USES SPLENDA AND I USED PLAIN PEANUT BUTTER AND NO CHIPS AND MADE A BATCH OF LITTLE PEANUT BUTTER TEA CAKES FOR HER. SHE IS A PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE PERSON WITH NO CHIPS. THEY CAME OUT GREAT. WILL BE USING THE RECIPE AGAIN FOR MY TEA PARTY WITH THE GRANDDAUGHTERS AND I THINK I'M GOING TO USE CHIPS AND SPRINKLES.. ALWAYS LOOKING FOR LITTLE TEA COOKIE RECIPES FOR TEA PARTIES. THANKS

Yummy - but be careful - there's sugar!

by R. R , LA, CA on Dec. 2006

This recipe calls for Splenda "sugar blend" which is a pre-packaged mixture containg 1/2 splenda and 1/2 sugar. So contrary to one of the reviews below, there IS real sugar in these cookies. Just 1/2 the amount of regular cookies. Splenda "granular" has no sugar, but the cookies don't come out as well as the ones made with "sugar blend". Diabetics beware.

Yum, Yum, Yum!!!

These were so good. I couldn't believe they were healthy! I had also used light butter and reduced fat chunky pb. You would not be able to tell the difference! I will be making these again.
