Very crispy, sweet and salty!! I had to make a double batch to get 38 cookies - but it was worth it! Thanks!

This is an awesome tasting cookie!! I like that it is different from the normal peanut and chocolate chip cookies I have had!! The sea salt gives them a great salty taste that my husband and I both loved!! Great recipe, thanks for posting!!
