Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sounded delicous BUT.... I love peanut butter, so I was excited to bake these. Followed the instructions, but was unhappy with results! The dough was not the normal consistency but since it was my first time using Truvia I thought maybe during baking it would improve. Well, unfortunately, the baked cookies were AWFUL!! The texture was dry, and the taste was not appealing! Nobody would eat them! I even set them out for my squirrels and even they just nibbled on them and then left them on the railing. Total waste of time and money, will NOT be making these ever again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to regular cookies I'm really glad I found this recipe. These come out awesome and my husband and I eat them in 2 days or less. Instead of shortening I use apple sauce and instead of flour I used ground up oatmeal. Instead of one egg I used one egg white. Perfect cookies. I make them almost once a week! It's unfortunate many people had bad results with this recipe. If you make the substitutions I did, it may change the outcome. I never use shortening so I don't really know.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dry Batter I made these for my husband tonight. I followed the recipe exact. The batter was dry and crumbled. I was able to form balls but when you go to mash the balls with a fork they crumble to pieces. I ended up having to put them back in the bowl and add a couple table spoons of milk to make the batter workable. The batter is heavy cooked and the taste is not sweet. I do not recommend these cookies to anyone. They are not what you would imagine a cookie to be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from soft baked I followef the directions, but noticed the butter was not mixing in well. I melted the butter then followed the rest of the instructions. I noticed the batter was a bit crumbly, but workable. I added 1 oz of vanilla pudding mix and about 3 tbsp of my lactose free milk, baked for 12 min. They were slightly overdone, but I did the next batch for 10 min then checked them. They were perfect. Enough flavor, soft, moist and did not crumble.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need to work out the kinks I read the reviews and tried to work out some of the problems (dough too dry, melt the butter first, etc.) and still had problems. I even called my grandmother to get some advice from her but to no avail. Dough was a little easier to work with then most had reported (I not only melted the butter but added a little extra) but the cookies were still crumbly and just did not taste right. Not bad, just not right.
