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!
These cookie are Fantastic! I have made them twice and they are a hit with everyone!
Wow! I made these on Christmas Eve to give as presents and the first batch were flat and buttery. I added a total of 1 cup of flour and refrigerated the dough for several hours before baking them...AMAZING! I put them in toboggans for my male cousins. I left out the nuts because I knew some of them didn't like nuts. They all raved about the cookies and 2 of my aunts have even called for the recipe!!! Your recipe wowed a chocoholic family!!!! BIG THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
