These cookies will make your mouth sing! If you love the flavor thar toasted nuts have, you will love these cookies. They are not a doctored up oatmeal cookie, but like a really good energy bar/cookie. These have been adapted from a bakery called "Tutti's" in Montecito, CA.
My boys came home from a bachelor party w/this recipe and said "mom you just have to make these". Needless to say they are decadent. I was surprised they'd be served at that type of party, but it worked. Delish!
This recipe is from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook. They are absolutely wonderful. I actually use a little less cocoa in the frosting than it calls for, but feel free to adjust according to how chocolaty you like it.
