Instead of walnuts or pecans, this chocolate chip cookie recipe calls for salted peanuts. Whenever I bake these, friends and family seem to come running!

MY REVIEW

You can really taste the peanuts in this cookie. It seems to be missing something. The next time I make them I am going to increase the vanilla a little.

These are a favorite, but only make about half of what the recipes says.

MY REVIEW

These were really good. Common chocolate chip cookie though. The only negative is the dough gets really thick after a while- there is a lot of flour. It might be hard to handle, but other than that- it was a good classic cookie- the peanuts were a good addition.
