I had some brazil nuts I didn't know what to do with and this recipe was interesting. It's the first cookie recipe that my 86 year old mom & I have seen that doesn't use butter or some kind of shortening! I followed the directions as written and used 1 cup of light brown sugar and 1 cup of dark brown sugar since it didn't specify. I also baked on silicone sheets, without greasing. After cooling for about 5 min., the cookies did not stick. I ended up with a DELICIOUS cookie that is slightly chewy rather than crisp. I may have made the sticks a bit too thick, but it doesn't matter. There is a wonderful nuttiness to them and I intend to try using other nuts once I've finished the brazil nuts! I would recommend this recipe to everyone! It doesn't get any easier than this! (Unless you buy the refrigerated or frozen stuff. ;D)
