I use to buy name-brand breakfast cookies from the supermarket, but since I found this recipe I've enjoyed making my cookies more than buying them.—Linda Burciaga

"This is a winner! It's hard to eat just one! As we all do, I adjusted the recipe to what I had on hand. I replaced peanut butter with almond butter; replaced "craisins" with chopped dates; and added 3/4 cup toasted slivered almonds. I don't have the dry milk powder, so it was omitted. I was alarmed that there was no egg, but it's not necessary at all. You will enjoy this breakfast treat!"
