    I love peanut butter cookies. They are almost as good as (and sometimes better than) chocolate chip cookies. I love how quick and easy this recipe looks as I am definitely a “beginner.”

      I agree – but why not have 2 in 1 and add chocolate chips! This is a great recipe if you are a beginner, give it a try.:)
