      LA - This recipe makes a great chewy cookie, and the trick is to not over bake them. The edges should just be turning golden brown and the center should still look a little wet when you pull them out. Moving the cookies from the baking sheet to the cooling rack also helps them set up without sacrificing the chewiness. Good luck!

      They sound awesome. I've always used margerine or butter, not Crisco for my pb cookies. I am going to try Crisco this time with your recipe. I am trying to make them more chewy vs. crunchy. Can't wait to try them!
