    Loved these cookies! The grandkids have informed me they expect these in my cookie jar at all times...which is fine with me, as this recipe is quick and uses ingredients I always have on hand. The only change I made was to use Smart Balance 50/50 Butter Blend in place of the margarine with no problems. Thank you Dee.

    Great cookies! The only thing I did differently was not chill the dough, they didn't spead out much and had nice crispy edges and a soft middle. Thanks for the recipe Chef Dee, everyone in this house loved them.
    Mine werent creamy but were semi soft, but maybe I baked a little to long. The flavor is great as I really like peanutbutter cookies with margarine and not shortening. Great recipe that got great reviews from those eating them!! Going to try again for creamier and softer ones!! Thanks Dee.

    Very good! We liked the addition of peanut butter chips, and I also added chocolate chips to half of the batch. These were very good cookies

    These were....REALLY GOOD! I didn't have peanut butter chips, so I used chocolate chips instead. I placed heaping teaspoons of the dough on ungreased baking sheets, and ended up with 3 1/2 dozen cookies. I didn't chill the dough before baking, as I had no space in the refrigerator, but they turned out great anyway! Thanks for sharing your tasty recipe, Dee!
