These are absolutely the best! (P.S. - if you have 3 little kids at your feet and forget to add the vanilla to the condensed milk - they still taste great!) (And if you are quadrupling the recipe and leave out two sticks of butter, you can take out the too dry flour mixture, beat the forgotten butter, and add the dry mix back in to make the dough perfect again.)
These are amazing! I do need to note, though, that I chose to omit the sea salt because I used salted mixed nuts and felt additional salt would be too much. Next time I make these, and there will definitely be a next time (!), I will use unsalted nuts. My only addition was to drizzle some melted semi-sweet chocolate over the top. Thanks for posting, Sandi!
I should have rated these sooner - I made them for Christmas but I'm only just getting to it! These were a HUGE hit with everyone. I was worried some people might be put off by the salt, but they were the first cookies to disappear. They were also very easy to make, and turned out just as expected. I did go light on the salt and I coarsely chopped my nuts (pecans and almonds) rather than leaving them whole. A keeper!
