"This recipe combines several favorite flavors-peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate-in one big cookie," writes Patricia Schroedl of Jefferson, Wisconsin. "Before baking, I like to press a few extra M&M's on top for added color."

These are a hit, and I've made them a few times. One note: don't use crunch peanut butter. I did that recently but it seemed to make the cookies "dry."

These were a big hit at my baby's dedication gathering! I've renamed "Many Blessings" cookies cause they are packed with lots of good things! Only alternation to the recipe I made was I did not add the peanuts cause I don't like nuts in stuff. So, instead of peanuts, I put in 1 cup of white choc chips. :o) They were a hit!

NO flavor...they were soooo bland. I followed the recipe exactly. Put them in airtight container overnight, next day they were as hard as a rock. SOOO disappointing!

MY REVIEW

These are good, very peanut & peanut buttery. They aren't super sweet as far as cookies go. We made them 1/2 as big as the recipe says since our kids are smaller. Easier to handle if you put a few drops of water on your palms every 5 cookies or so.
