Notes

  • Use creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy, if desired.
  • To help the corn syrup pour easily from the measuring cup, spray it first with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Melted sugar is extremely hot; do not touch the mixture until cooled.
  • Move quickly when dropping the spoonfuls of cookies onto the parchment paper.  They will harden quickly. 
  • Try adding some more fun add-ins such as coconut, rice krispies, dried fruit, etc.
