    Really tasty. I used sainsburys freefrom sunflower spread and it worked really well. I recommend crunchy peanut butter because the texture is good.  -  20 Nov 2011


    Really easy to prepare but I'd suggest checking the cookies after about 12mins as I managed to overbake half the batch! Tasty and went down well with my husband so I think they'll be made again.  -  26 Feb 2012
