This is a very yummy cookie recipe, which is perfect for those "I am craving for something sweet but not too sweet"-days, if you know what I mean. =) They are crisp but with a soft centre and can be made gigantic, medium size or small depending on your personal preferences. Peanuts can be substituted by any other type of nut you like without the cookies losing flavour or texture.

What a delightful treat! I was able to convert all the ingredients easily! The only slight change was I cannot find the vanilla sugar here in our rural area so I used granulated and added about a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract to the dough. These are moist in the center and have that nice bite to them on the outside. I received 30 standard size cookies using a medium cookie scoop. I could gobble these right up easily so I better tuck some away and soon! Made for PRMR tag game (my first tag there ever!).
