4.75 stars on this one. I don't say this often but these things are honestly addicting! Made them yesterday and when I first tried them, thought they were "missing" something. (Might be because most of the cookies I bake have chocolate ... I'm still pondering this.) Yet I noticed today that whenever I walked by & grabbed one, I always went back at least 3 times (I'm not going to tell you the exact number of times)! These are chewy-slightly crispy and while you taste the peanuts and have a hint of the coconut, no one flavor overpowers the taste. DARNED good to eat!
