how much sugar do u use?

This is a great, great recipe and so easy! The thing I did differently was I try to skip the butter and double the peanut butter (I use creamy style some of my girls were finicky on nuts) and also use 1/2 cup raisins added and/or coconut .. it's a little more healthy. Sometimes I add a little extra fiber. A couple last hints my girls like it better with 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder and the texture ...it's all about the boiling time. If you under-boil you will get cookies that won't set, if you over-boil, you will get cookies that will crumble and not form at all. It's a really good and healthy recipe .. even if your kids don't like to eat most healthy food! Sugar should be 1 1/2 cups some people do 2 cups. (My crew has always loved it with 1 1/2 cups) I try to scrimp on sugar yet still have everyone love it.

These look sooooo good...we used to call these "macaroons" growing up and my Mom used to make them a bit differently but these look VERY similar. YUMMY...I can't wait to try these. Thanks for sharing!!! Lori. :o)

It is one of my favorites.

OMG!!!! I LOVE these!!! I haven't seen this recipe in years and forgot how to make them. Thanks so much for posting!

It didn't turn out at all....it wouldn't set, it stayed kinda loose. It ended up being yummy goo. So next time defiantly going to look for another recipe.
