Crisp on the outside, soft in the middle. A bit like melting moments. I would agree the sugar could be reduced as they are very sweet.I added some plain chocolate chips for a bit of variation. I would definitely make these again but maybe use the self raising flour instead of rice.

I love these but do find they tend to break and are quite soft in the middle. I use SR Flour and omit the BP. I might reduce the sugar as others say and use Plain next time.

So easy to make them!!!!And absolutely yummy:-)Just a bit too sweet fo me, even though I reduced sugar to 100gr. Next time I'll try to put 75gr.

Very scrummy, i think they could do with a little more peanut butter in the recipe. As per other people's recommendations i reduced the sugar to 75g's not too sweet :-D

The fact I have made this recipe 3 times in less than a week is enough of a review!!
Today, I made them with a new jar of peanut butter, and that has made them have a more cookie consistency.
Made them with Doves SR Gluten Free Flour, omitting the Baking Powder and the Doves Plain Gluten Free flour. I haven't tried just rice flour as yet.
A previous poster was right, they don't last in an airtight container......they are eaten!

I made these with 100g sugar but they are still quite sweet and also used crunchy peanut butter.They rolled into balls no problem and some I made double size but they were more included to break. Cooked 20 mins but I think they need longer as they have not stayed crisp. A lot depends on the amount the teaspoon is filled with the baking powder. I will have another go at them

I make these using Dove's Farm Gluten Free Plain Flour and they are devine! The recipe says to roll into balls and flatten with a fork, but I find this almost impossible, as the mixture is too soft and sticky. Instead, I just drop nice, rustic looking spoonfuls onto a lined baking tray and let them form their own shape as they bake in the oven. Also, I get about 20 cookies instead of 40...who wants a tiny cookie?

Delicious cookies. My son loves them, and they store very well. I can make a batch on Sunday for his afterschool treats. Recipe is too sweet for me though, so i've reduced the sugar to 100g and the cookies are still crisp and sweet. Might even try and reduce the sugar a bit more next time. Has anyone tried making these with any other flavouring - ginger perhaps? I'd love see if more flavours work..
