Ratings & Reviews



Super easy!!! Tastes great!


Great treat for those of us on gluten free diet. Treat for our whole family!


My kids loved this recipe. I used brown sugar instead of regular sugar and it was just as good.


very peanuty without the other ingredients its seems like you just tossed pb in the oven.... i guess that really is all you are doing


So easy, would definitely make again. Did put bowl in fridge for half hour or so, cookies didn't spread out, they were just perfect!



I prefer the old fashioned cookies BUT this recipe lives up to its name it is SUPER easy and tasty. The bonus for me is that a member of our house has gone gluten and dairy free under doc's orders and another member has decided to cut out as much wheat as well. Which leave me between a rock and a hard place knowing what to cook for them.


I have used this recipe for years, saw it in almost the first printing of your what's cooking magazine years ago and so easy and no flour which is good for me now that i am watching no wheat in my diet. thanks a lot


So easy. So delicious. Just make sure you use the right type of peanut butter, don't use the 100% natural peanut butter otherwise the peanut oils will make the cookies greasy (yuck). Just use either the creamy kind or the chunky one. Also, you can add chocolate chips, other nuts, whatever you like. :) And don't keep the cookies too close to the other cookies on the pan when baking.


It is unbelievable how such a simple recipe produces such a superior cookie. The taste is straight-to-the point peanut butter but the creamy and crumbly texture is what makes this cookie something to write home about. Tip: add about 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and these cookies are even more delicious!


Super-easy yuck!! Spend the time making the old fashioned recipe instead!!


Our son does not like cake or ice-cream, so Birthday cakes are always a challenge. So, we double this recipe and make 1 huge cookie in a large shallow, round pan,then decorate with icing or melted chocolate chips. Its a hit every year.


Super-simple & super-yummy...I make these for my neighbour's grandson. He gets half a batch & we get the other 1/2. What a treat for everyone. Thanx for the delish recipe!


Great cookies we add chocolate chips, everyone loved them! Will be makeing them again!


Yes these are super easy to make, but why bother making something that doesn't taste good? The "batter" is like a goo that I am not sure how you could strike a fork through to make the cookies look the way they do in the picture. Won't make again!1


Perfect! If they don't turn out, you should give up and just buy some cookies instead, these are the ecoutre ma of peanut butter cookies! THE BEST!!!!


I made a few adjustment to this recipe. I doubled the recipe and used icing sugar instead of granulated sugar and Kraft Crunchy Peanut Butter. It makes 12 large cookies. If you dust you hands with icing sugar when you are making balls with the mixture it is easy to form and won't stick. I bake the cookies at 350 for 20 minutes. I let them sit for 5-10 minutes on the cookie sheet and then remove them carefully and let them cool completely before storing them. The cookies freeze well and are delicious and addictive right out of the freezer. :)



I pulled them out of the oven after 8 minutes as they already starting to burn! Other than that, they weren't too bad.


This is my go to PB cookie recipe. It is super easy (as the name says) and moist, melt in your mouth delicious! It is different from other PB cookies with flour because it is not dry at all. Everyone who has every tried my cookies loves them!!!


I just found out that I am wheat/gluten intollerant and I was thrilled that I could still have this simple treat! I really enjoy them and my kids have said that they prefer these over the ones with flour in them.


Have made this and DO NOT like them at all. The cookie tastes raw and seems like it is missing something. Cooked them longer to see if that would make them taste better NOT. Cooked them less to see if that would make them taste better NOT....


had to reduce the time for 5 mins as the cookies were burning.



If you love peanut butter then these are the BEST!!!!!


I only used 2 tbsp sugar and added a little bit of oats. YUM YUM They don't last. I made them exact the first time and boy were they good! I just want a diet cookie. YUM YUM YUM and so easy.


Help... I tried this recipe and found that all that happened was the cookies melted into flat curdled puddles, and turned into something more like wafers when they were cool. What am I missing? Everyone else loves this recipe. I followed it to the letter. I love to oook, but I'm not a baker.


This is my favourite Peanut Butter Cookie recipe! I was craving them badly but I didn't have white sugar so I used brown sugar instead and they turned out great. Chewier, and just as tasty!


super easy, delicous and fun to make with the kids!!!


I just put the cookies in the oven and it looked kind of mushy...................... they looked good during cooking I cant wait to try them.......................... it would take more cooking time........... they are horrible they were still a mush even if I burnt them to a crisp


Literally takes no time to prepare. You have 24 cookies even before you know it - Whats easier than 3 ingredients??? Love this recipe!!!!


If you like peanut butter, what is there NOT to love about this recipe?! ...except the lack of chocolate. As soon as they're out of the oven, I press in 3 chocolate chips, spread out and upside down.



this is a good and easy thing to make, i used all natural peanut butter, which made them even tastier.


This recipe is a staple in our house. The kids love to help make these because they are so quick & easy!


My 3 yr old grandson & I make these every time he comes to visit - so easy and very good!


These are great. So quick, taste great, not super sticky to mold - will make these over and over again for a midnight munch!


By far the best peanut butter cookie recipe I've ever made and I've made a lot!! And I love that there is no flour in these!! I added 1/4 cup of peanuts, amazing!!!!!



These are excellent cookies.I recommend them to everyone.


Very easy to make and tastes great.


This is a quick and easy recipe that tastes great as well. I have made these many times with different results some of the times....I find that putting the batter in the fridge for a couple of minutes prior to baking works best for me.


Easy, but had to alter this one... the texture of the batter is a little off, so I added a handful of pancake batter (believe it or not) also, I reduced the cooking time by about 5 mins and it turned out great


Super easy and super delicious!!!


We make this all the time! These cookies are yummy! My son enjoys making them too, they are super easy!


Excellent Recipe! Not sure why there were complaints regarding consistency. Just mix it well and it's easy to work with. I substituted 1/2 cup white sugar with 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend. The cookies are tasty, not hard, they have a short bread consistency and it's so quick to make in a jiff! I'm diabetic so not having flour in this recipe is a bonus and it still tastes great!


love this recipe . it easy and flour free which great for my friends that have gulton problems


I made these cookies for my husband's work place and have requests for more ever since. The guys say they are the BEST peanut butter cookies I have ever made.



very sweet, too sweet, but easy


I made these cookies and they were terrible. Think they need flour not just sugar and peanut butter


I made this recipe and substituted Splenda for sugar. They were wonderful. A nice treat for a diabetic. Super Easy, & Sweet, they hit the spot.


This is a super easy recipe. My little girl loves to make them with me! It's all about the peanut butter. I add 1 tsp of vanilla and sometimes, chocolate chips (then I reduce the sugar a bit). Enjoy!


This is by far the easiest to make and tastiest peanut butter cookie and my daughter's favourite. I add peanut butter or chocolate chips as well.


i love these cookies! they are honestly just like melted peanut butter! I would easily recommend them as a light and quick to make snack for lunches or afer school!


Everyone keeps complaining about the consistency, all I do is add about a tsp of regular flour (or rice flour for gluten free) and it works like a charm. I find the 20mins is perfect too. Taste great and super easy!


Well my son loves pb cookies and I made these for him, but I added 1/2 cup of flour just to give it something to hang on to, and it turned out very well.Nice recipe thanks


I make these all the time and love them! I always have all the ingredients on hand and mine stay soft by putting them in an airtight cookie jar (gotta love Ikea!)


This is a great recipe! I love that it only has three ingredients and my three year old helped me! I used a Wilton cookie scoop instead of rolling them into balls (too sticky and my measurements were accurate) and I refrigerated the dough before I scooped them. I watched them carefully to make sure they didn't burn and it took about 15 minutes rather than the 20 as stated. My husband and daughter love them very much!


I liked the fact that I only needed 3 simple ingredients that are always around the house. I was hesitant to make these after reading the reviews..I did not have a problem with the consistency at all, I think as long as your right on with the measurements.These cookies in NO WAY take 20 minutes to bake!! I took mine out after 11 minutes and they were BURNT to a CRISP.I had read reviews that the cooking time was off and to watch them so I did,but 11 minutes was even too long.I would say 8-10 minutes and to watch them.I will try this recipe again.


When I first read the reviews, I was a tad worried about the consistancy of the batter. It started out really gooy, but the more I mixed it (just used a wooden spoon) it thickened up! I under cooked the first sheet, and I might as well ate the peanut butter right from the jar! The second sheet worked out really well! They aren't as chewy as I would have liked, but they reminded me more of a peanut butter flavoured shortbread cookie. Yummy, but not my favorite PB Cookie Recipe! Nice and easy if you're craving a fast cookie or if people stop by unannounced!


These were the best ever! I understand why people were frustrated that they were sticky. I let mine sit for a few minutes before I rolled them and they were perfect. Also, try cooling your hands by running them under cold water to make the dough stick less.


These didn't turn out at all! I had to use spoons to put them on the pan cause they were way too gooey to roll....and they came out as flat as a pancake....didn't taste that great ither.I will not make these again.


I love this recipe!!! Very easy and tasty. The best peanut butter cookies I have ever made. Try them and you'll love them too!!!!


Best peanut butter cookie recipe ever! So easy to make and they turned out great! Nice and soft and chewy. Best part of all, did not even require any flour!! Loved it! Totally recommend it!


this was supper easy as it says & makes great cookies! im busy with my son so i dont have alot of time to spend on things other then him, so this was perfect!


Comes in handy when you have company comming with children even!!!


i think its an awesome and most important,very quick recipe!!. i make them all the time this way and will never make them any other way again!!. they taste great and my daughter lovves them<3 P.s-if they came out sticky for you ,then you didnt do your measuring accurately...it takes a good chef to do it!!!!a+


love it love it love it. I also made this with splenda brown sugar and no sugar added chocolate chips!!! fantastic


I have made this recipe on several occasions, each with the naive hope that the results would improve! The dough was far too wet and the cookies are not nearly sweet enough. For those of you who are looking for a cookie that is merely solidified peanut butter, this recipe is for you. For the rest of us, we'll have to keep searching!


I would use a little less sugar the next time




I love using this peanut butter cookie recipe! It makes a small batch, so it's the perfect amount for my boyfriend and I. Sometimes I add in a few chocolate chips for something different!!


yummmm....super easy to make too. Kids loved making and tasting them. oh, and my husband and I loved them too! I think I took them out of the oven at about 15 minutes though since they were cooked at that time.



Absolutely love this recipe very easy to make and yummy to eat....and the kids love to help without getting flour EVERYWHERE!


Simple, Fast, and Easy to make! The kids had lots of fun! However, the cookies were starting to burn at only about 15 mins of cooking. So I recommend lowering the cooking time to 10-12 minutes.


something is missing it was to dry


perfect and easy!


Most exquisite but simple recipe.


Love how you only needed 3 things to make them. They made the house smell yummy. Will be making these again very soon!Thanks again Kraft.


So yummy and easy to make. They don't last overnight in our house.


I love this recipe!


I first made this recipe was I was 10 years old, from the peanut butter jar. It has since been my absolute favourite peanut butter cookie recipe, as I am now 19! Absolutely love it! They disappear very quickly. For softer cookies if they've been out for a bit (they'll disappear before they have a chance to, trust me) stick them in the microwave for 5-10 seconds. Warm and soft!


Soooooooooo "delish"!! My husband loves them so much even he'll break down and take to baking in the kitchen!


they have to be the simplest cookie to make and they are delicious


I have made these cookies before this time however they burned so i had to cut baking time in half


super delightful grandkids loved them mmmmm:) adults too



There is something missing in these cookies. My husband said they were tasteless. I think what was missing was the flour.


Excellent and easy to make. I drop them on the cookie sheet first and then quickly lightly roll them...no sticky problem whatsoever. Using a silpat sheet, or parchment also makes for super easy clean up.


Have made these cookies several times. Very,very easy and delicious.


This is the best and easiest cookie recipe I've ever made! Whenever my husband and I have a sweet tooth we make these because we always have all of the ingredients on hand. a couple of tips - we slightly undercook them so they stay soft. and when they just come out of the oven try pressing a caramel kiss into the centre. it becomes soft and gooey - so delicious!!


This is absolutely disgusting!


I made these cookies and used 1 cup of sugar. Awesome!!!!!! Here's my tip: DON'T roll these cookies - use a mini cookie scoop and drop the balls onto the cookie sheet. This works really well.


I first seen this recipe on the peanut butter jar...and thought it might not work because there wasn't any flour or anything it in...but i would have to say this is the best PB cookie ever I had...me and my four year old made them and he even made the balls and flatten with a fork and had no troubles.....next time i make them i think i will drizzle choc over the top...Yet again Kraft Canada with a quick and easy recipe...thanks Kraft Canada!!!


These are the best peanut butter cookies that I have ever made!! So easy! The best part of these cookies is that they aren't made with flour so I can make them for my good friend who has an allergy to wheat.




Quick prep. Fast bake. Tastes delicious!


Its Simple and easy and everyone loves them! A must try for everyone!


I tried these for the first time today and they turned out wonderfully. I added a tsp. of vanilla & about 1/2 cup chopped almonds. I put the batter in the fridge for 5 - 10 minutes so they were easier to roll out. Instead of 24 cookies, I made 12 big cookies and they were gone at one sitting. Thanks Kraft, you've done it again....made my life easier with such a simple recipe.


I just tried this recipe. Tastes great,and not overly sweet, even though I did put extra sugar.


Fast and easy! My four year old loves to help with these cookies, and they turn out great!


I made this off of the recipe on the jar. It just said "mix" so I used a mixer - not a good thing. Turned out like globs of peanut butter on a pan - threw it in the garbage. Then I mixed another batch with a wooden spoon but still had to add about a tbsp of flour so I could roll, even after refrigerating.


These cookies are astounding!! I was a bit sceptical about this recipie at first, then I tried the recipie.Boy was I amazed!!The cookies turned out amazing!! I used crunchy peanut butter insted of smooth peanut butter.


These cookies are amazing and I don't even like peanut butter cookies. I use a cup of sugar instead of 1/2 a cup. Once I mix everything together I let it sit in the fridge for 5min, which makes it easy to roll. I also like to throw in chocolate chips as an extra treat.


It did not turn out so well. Actually the cookies were rock hard and left ALOT of grease on the pan. I don't think that you can make a peanut butter cookie without flour. Maybe i did it wrong. But i would rather not try this recipe again.


i never knew it was sssssooo easy definetly do it again n agian


awesome! good peanut buuter taste




It's the best . When you're in a hurry or just want really great peanut butter cookies. Added bonus is no wheat!


Really great, and easy to make! Especially good for anyone who has wheat allergies...as there's no flour! Some added sprinkles or sugar make for added fun or a festive look. :)


I was really skeptical because this only had three ingredients but it had such good reviews (and many) that I gave it a try. They aren't the classic peanut butter cookies, but they are quite good. I don't know how people rolled them into balls as it was quite sticky, so I used two spoons instead.


Kids love them & I love that they're so easy.



I was so impressed. I've never made Peanutbutter Cookies before and when I saw this recipe I was a afraid, but these cookies came out amazing and everyone in my house LOVES them. I will be making these again!


I just love this recipe. Quick and easy. Made it several times. Though it couldn't possibly work with such few ingredients but come out great.


I make this recipe for my dad all the time. I love how it is quick and easy. I know how everyone hates baking with peaunut butter becuase it sticks to the bowl, but what I do id let it soak in hot water for 5 minutes and then it's easyer to clean off. This reacipe is great!


I used a sugar substitute instead of regular sugar. This recipe worked out great and my diabetic husband just loves them.


Love this recipe takes a matter of minutes and a matter of minutes for them to be all gone! Huge hit for my boyfriend and I!


My three year old and I love making these cookies! Very easy for her to help and very good. They are usually gone in a couple days.




very easy and very good tasting! my boyfriend eats these up like they are going out of style!


So easy, so good!



these are the most simple cookies i had made and they taste great


very tasty


Really, really good! I was skeptical, but these are really delicious. I've even made them with 1/2 smooth and 1/2 crunchy peanut butter.


I've never been a fan of Peanut Butter cookies, but these were quite different. I like adding a bit of cocoa powder to mine, so I get a really nice chocolate-peanut butter cookie. Super easy, a real winner.


this is the first time i've bake anything with out flour. i'm amazed. there were good. i've had peanut butter cookies and they were dry tasting. these were perfect. i will make this again.


this is a really good recipe.


Yummy and easy to make!


I especially like these with the white chocolate chips and craisons!



Its name says it all! These were super easy peanut butter cookies!


This is a great recipe. I used to make it all the time during college because it only needs 3 things. Everyone ate the cookies up fast whenever I made them. They taste great and you don't have to put much effort into them!


This is a great recipe to have on hand when unexpected grandchildren arrive.They love them and I love making them. Very very easy and good.


Sooooo easy!!! The kids loved them! They taste like you spent a lot of time making them. If you love peanut butter you will love these cookies. Fast and easy.


this recipe was great. they tasted great and so easy to make. i mixed in some berry jam with the batter and topped them with some vanilla icce cream or whipped toppping!


Super easy, great for the kids to do!


Great cookie to make with kids. I added some cocoa to it and they tasted great.


These are VERY tasty. Could be a little less sweet but I can't stop eating them.. For how simple and tasty they are they definatley deserve a five star rating!


I love the ease of these cookies - I like to add chocolate chunks on top before baking.


YUMMY! I coudn't believe the ingredients, so I had to try them. So good. We can't get enough!


Good recipe & easy to make.


These were so easy to make and they take no time to prepare!


When I first read this recipe on the back of a jar of Kraft Peanut Butter, I couldn't belive it. A peanut butter cookie recipe without using flour. I finally made a batch tonigt just to test it out, and let me tell you, this recipe is absolutley PHENOMINAL! TRY IT! TRY IT! TRY IT!


This is a super-easy and super-delicious recipe. I'm not a fan of peanut butter cookies, but decided to make them for my mother-in-law...I couldn't stop eating them!


pretty good


my step-dad is celiac. He can have these cookies and just loves them. Most gluten free deserts don't taste this good.


My family LOVES these cookies. Very easy to make and sooo delicious.


Super Easy! We also love to throw in a handful of chocolate chips or raisins. The kids love these right out of the freezer!


A very easy recipe to make but very good



I love it and quick and easy even for my husband can make it


For a guy who loves peanut butter cookies it just does'nt get any better than this. Thank you.


These cookies also work well with chunky peanut butter. I doubled the batch and used half creamy and half chunky peanut butter.Great!



Quick, easy and yummy!!


These are absolutley perfect when you have a cookie craving-Mmmmm!-I'm going to make some right now!




These cookies are too good!! My 2 year old son and I made them the other day and they are soo easy to make and soo good to eat.


This is a super easy recipe to make with fabulous results. They taste better than bakery shop peanut butter cookies.


all the peanutbutter taste, without the floury taste


My mother has been making these for years! Ever since I was diagnosed (as a child) to have Celiac Disease....there's no flour in them! They're wonderful, and hard to tell the difference from the original recipe!


Super easy to make and the kids love them so with no time to prepare and bake I can make more in a hurry. They love to help too and it is not complicated for them.


These taste fabulous and so, so easy to make!!!!




super easy for the kids and a great snack for those on a wheat free diet


Awesomely easy! ;-)



Awesome!!!! So easy to make. I also got my kids involved and they were so proud of their cookies!!!!


You can also add chocolate chips and then thay taste like Peanut Butter Cups!


I have a diabetic son and have had a hard time finding snacks that he can eat. The first time I made these, they didn't turn out. This time I used a sugar substitute, and added about 1/4 c. oat bran to the recipe. They stayed in form and I had no problem rolling them out. They also taste great, and add more fibre to my sons diet.


My favourite! Normally, I don't like baking but this recipe is so fast and easy, I use it all the time for treats for my grandchildren. They think it is wonderful as they can help by rolling the dough and pressing with the fork. Thanks for sharing.


my kids absolutely love to help me make these cookies, and they love eating them more...yummy


super good and my grandma loves them!


These are the most amazing peanut butter cookies i've ever had. They're sooo simple to make. I just love to make them for company because they get fresh cookies!


My son loves them. Just a tip if you chill the dough for a few min it rolls better. So quick I can make them on the way out the door for work so the kids have a snack with the sitters.


Very easy to make in a hurry, taste great!!!


These are the fastest and best peanut butter cookies ever.


I love how easy these are and how great they taste. Whenever I need to make a quick plate of cookies I always have these ingredients and the time to make these cookies!


i made these cookies with my 9yr old nephew, they were sooo easy to prepare, we added a handful of mini choc.chips because i had some in the pantry, they tasted great. sure to make them again soon.


I thought these were great! So delicious and very soft the way I like them! They are very easy to make and so easy to eat!


My whole family loved them.


People always joke about my cooking and when I made these they all couldn't believe that I made them and then when I told them how easy it was, they all started to try it. My teenager even comes home and makes them.


This was absolutely the easiest and the best cookie recipe I have ever tried!!!! For a first time baker whose cookies have come out burnt and/or hard as bricks--these were a hit with my husband and co-workers!!! So soft & chewy!!


Very Yummy stays soft freezes well. My 5 year old son couldn't get enough of them. He would get up in the morning and go down to the deep freeze and eat them frozen!


we super love this , thanks for being there... love diane


This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe ever! I have been looking for a great pb cookie recipe for years... who knew to just look on the back of the pb jar. The only problem is they disappear to fast. I make them at least once a week for lunches. They are a huge hit with my boys...Thanks Kraft, you did it again. Dvk


Here's twist. I've been using this recipe for a while and it always works, so I decided to give it a twist today. Instead of the Extra Creamy variety I always use, I used the new Kraft Peanut Butter with Chocalate variety. WOW!! Very, very, very, very, very goooooood!!


So easy, so good. We make them a lot. For a little creativity, kids wanted to try adding 1/2 cup chocolate chips/chunks. WOW ! If you love chocolate & peanut butter, this is the cookie for you.


Can't get any easier or delicious!!! I have made these quite a few times for my husband as these are his favorite & having 2 small children I can get them made without taking too much time or ingredients. Needless to say they are usually gone by the same evening with the four of us returning to the kitchen till they are gone!


I made these last night, and they turned out very good! Simple and easy to make to.


Great Snack for the Whole Family
