Fabulous cookie recipe! I made 1/2 the recipe and got 3 dozen. They were delicious! For peanut lovers! Made for Football Pool 2012 game.
Oh this are soooo good!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and only added the chopped peanuts to half of the amount due to DS not liking the texture of the nuts. These were addictive, had to force myself to stop grabbing them. Using my 1 inch cookie scoop, I got 28 cookies, which are medium in size. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats!!!!

Absolutely fantastic cookies, luckily my wife and I managed to get our hands on a couple each, Cooking time right on the dot, and ended up with a nice batch of soft, chewy cookies. Made for PRMR tag.. I did cut the recipe in half, and made larger cookies.
