Made these very delicious cookies as given in the recipe, no additions & no modifications, & along with several neighbors, we made short work of the whole batch! The few we had left were great the next day crumbled over a bit of chocolate ice cream! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

Very good - I was looking for a way to use up some salted peanuts - this was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe.

I made these with the other in-house, as we call ourselves, cookin' 3 yo grandbaby. We both agree--5 stars! Oh, we threw in a handful of white chocolate chips for good measure. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.
