"This is a recipe I developed. Please note if you are subbing margarine for butter, margarine has oil in it so it will most likely require a little more flour or the batter may be quite soft, for best flavor and texture I strongly suggest to use all butter, if using all margarine then you may need one cup level and one semi-heaping cup of flour, if you are using only butter then two level cups should be just fine. Baking 10 minutes will give you a crispier cookie, 8 minutes a softer cookies. This cookie dough freezes well. UPDATE: I made these using all margarine with using 2 level cups of flour, they did not spread out as much which if fine with me and seemed to take a little longer to bake, but most important, they didn't taste as good. For myself I will not be making them again using all margarine, I think though they would be fine using half butter and margarine. For the best flavor, I recommend using all butter"

Truely the best PB cookies that I have made, I'm not joking, these are seriously bake shop quality cookies. I'm not sure what makes them such high quality but I do know this will be my new PB recipe that I'll use from now on. I'm only sorry I didn't find this recipe earlier. Thanks very much to Kittencal!
