Wonderful cookies, as usual, Loula! I totally forgot to put the dough in the freezer, but it didn't seem to cause any problem - they still turned out fantastic! I used milk chocolate chips because I didn't have the chocolate called for. I also added a bit of vanilla paste but that was because I got this recipe confused with the other one of yours I was considering - was a great addition, though! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

These cookies are so awesome tasting Lou. I understand that the milk chocolate you're speaking of is a candy bar with nuts, but I opted (with permission) to use peanut M&M's. I did chop them a bit along with some regular salted peanuts. I did leave out the pinch of salt. I should mention that my p.b. was the smooth variety also. Wowzer..are these ever good. Light and crispy!~ Made for Veg-n-Swap.
