Loved these cookies! I was able to get 3 sheets of 15 cookies, had to try a cookie from each sheet to make sure they were done. Then, once they cooled, I had to try one from each batch again to see if they were crunchy or soft (they were just right) and the man ate a couple. So I guess I was able to get just under 3 dozen :). I did have a good amount of the nut/sugar mixture left over, but I put in in a plastic bag for the next batch of these I make! Thanks Barb!!
