I just made these today for pick a recipe...I am SOOOO glad I did. These were super easy to make and really great! I substituted pecans as that is all we had, and added a few peanut butter chips I had to use up. The result...a really bomb cookie. Thanks so much for the recipe. I plan to make these every christmas!
