    SUCH A SIMPLE RECIPE!!!! Mine is almost out of the oven. My version?….peanut butter, chocolate chips and carmel :):) THANK YOU!!!!! and no I did NOT use an icecream scoop…not to sound rude lmao

  3. Mercia Yoong says:

    Can I make this without an electric mixer?

  4. Sim Agarwal says:

    can we skip adding eggs?

  5. susie leyens says:

    Recipe states bicardonate of soda and baking soda but you don't mention baking soda in your video? Do we need to add both? Thanks Gemma x

  6. Challah Zimman says:

    I made these and I dieded. Now I'm a ghost. Sooooooo goooooooooooooood..

  7. Yo Yo Yo it is yasmin says:

  8. Yo Yo Yo it is yasmin says:

    u should do a video of how to make chocolate walffles

  9. that way says:

    How do you make your own jam? Would be delighted to know that !

  10. Lenniah says:

    I've just baked them and half of them is already AWOL. 😀 The smell is so amazing and the texture! Devine. You're the best, Jemma! 🙂

  11. Split says:

    Great recipe!Only 3 minor issues
    -Sugar granules took ages to disolve
    -Too sweet IMO (20gr less of sugar would make it)
    -Way too much baking time (my first batch turned crispy so I reduced the time by 2 minutes and chewy perfection came out!)

  12. Wendy Hampton says:

    Could I use chunky peanut butter?

  13. na na says:

    hi Jemma, if I use homemade peanut butter, do I need to adjust the recipe or something? I only use roasted peanut with a pinch of salt and sugar for the peanut butter

  14. Sweetlilly Jarrett says:

    what is the brand name of the apron?

  15. Steve Lebel says:

    I just made these with my son and we used Nutella instead of jam and it was a huge hit!! Thank you!

  16. marcelascheffer says:

    Crunchy & delicious. Follow the measurements by weight, 160 g are more than 1/2 cup. This is one favorite here, thanks Jemma.

  17. Nadene Barboza says:

    Can I skip out the jam? Will I have to change my proportions for the ingredients?

  18. Channel Wafa says:

    I love you, I tried a recipe but its flaw is too much sugar

  19. Hue Q. says:

    Hi Jemma! Thx u for these amazing recipes! I’m in America, wonder if you could include measurements in cups & once? Thx u again! 🤩


    Amazing amazing cookies! A little too sweet for me so next time I’ll just half the jam and a little sugar. But DEEELICIOUSSSS!!!!
    Also if u can pls tell why did my Cookies stuck to the butter paper? Could it be the jam?

  21. Missouris Strider says:

    Way too sweet for me. I could hardly taste the peanuts. Next time I'll put much less sugar, no vanilla and more salt!

  22. Joana Miranda says:

    Hi! i halved the recipe and reduced the sugar in about 20 gr and weighted the egg. But mine didn't spread this beautifully.. was it because i cut the sugar?
    despite that the flavor was delicious!

  23. Rosa Veloso says:

    Can these be frozen and baked at a later time
