Recipe by Elisabetta47

From "Laura Groveman's Kitchen". Laura says this is a sandie with a twist: it has that sandie melt-in-your-mouth texture along with some chunky texture from the chopped peanuts and chocolate chips. The dough is on the crumbly side, but if you use your hands in the final mixing, it all comes together easily and produces a really special cookie.
