Reviews for Salted Peanut Cookies
"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."
"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."
"Excellent, finally I found a good chocolate chip recipe."
"My family and friends love these cookies. I get requests to make them on a regular basis."
"In my youth, Salted Peanut Cookies were a favorite of mine. If I leave out the chocolate chips will the cookies bake as well? Would I need to compensate by adding more of some ingredient? M.T."
"These cookies are the best. They are a favourite in our family. I get requests for the recipe all the time."
