Which cook time is correct?

Renée

Oooh, so sorry about the conflicting bake times, Diane! I'll fix that right away. Bake them in a 350-degree oven (not convection) for 20-22 minutes, or if you like a softer cookie, leave them in for less time. Maybe like 12-15 minutes (not convection). Thanks for bringing my error to my attention. I appreciate it. Take good care, Renee

You make it sound so easy! I can easily say that peanut butter, chocolate, and cookies are the most acceptable and favorite food of any household :) This recipe is a bonus as it takes only 5 ingredients to make them with an added bonus of being sugar-free. Very unique and wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
