Like peanuts? This is for you--a hit the year I made them. Enjoy!

Top Review by Kathleen Reed

I had a bumper pecan crop this year so I substituted pecans for peanuts. The cookies looked beautiful; however, they were not sweet-tasting to me. Of course, I am not diabetic, so that may have made the difference. I am going to make a new batch for my diabetic daughter-in-law and add a little more sweetener. Perhaps they will taste better to me. I will make these for my next 50-Plus meeting. We have several diabetics in there.
