Umm best cookies I've ever made! I added semi-sweet chocolate chips and protein powder. I also put a little less sugar than what the recipe calls for. I've made these cookies 3 times all different ways. Love it!

Meh. Really sugary grainy not enough pb flavor. Easy to scorch bottoms no matter how high the rack was. Ok.
