I just tried making these and it was a disaster. When following the recipe as exactly written, the dough remained very crumbly. I rolled a few and put them in the oven as a test, but they just fell apart. I tried adding a little more oil and peanut butter to the dough, but when baked, the cookies wouldn't flatten and threatened to fall apart again. I left them in the oven a little longer, but they started to burn. Did I do something wrong or is the recipe flawed?



I was really looking foward to some peanut butter cookies.

Sorry it didn't work out. I checked VegWeb and they have three peanut butter cookie recipes. Might have better luck with these...

Each has comments left by people who have tried them. Hopefully that'll help.

i'll try making these soon, i'm thinking about maybe adding some soymilk to them ?

I made these a little while ago... and yeah, the dough was really crumbly and useless. so I added one very ripe banana to the mixture and a dash of plain soymilk and they held together just fine. and as an added bonus, they tasted banana-y.

I just use the recipe on the back of the Kraft Peanut Butter jar (subbing in egg replacer for eggs of course). It makes beautiful soft and chewy cookies.

I made these, but they crumbled when I put Hershey's Kisses on top (I was making peanut butter blossoms out of the recipe ) They still tasted okay though

I made some. They were crumbly, so I just ate them crumbly. They still tasted great!

I have made those before, they are yum. I actually add some peanuts and a tablespoon of maple syrup to that recipe. Mine weren't crumbly.

I know what the problem is with these.



They're ripped straight out of the original Farm Vegetarian Cookbook which calls for 3/4 cup HONEY, not sugar.



Thus, the original recipe was more *liquid* and it worked perfectly.

(I know because I used to make them all the time.)



Just do agave instead of sugar and it should be okay. Maybe a touch of molasses for taste.
