"These are awesome! My whole family loves them. I often use pecans because I harvest my own and sometimes use half a bag of chocolate chips for half of a bag of peanut butter chips. I always freeze these because they taste even better and they make a bunch of cookies which keeps the kids and hubby happy for a while."

"I've made smaller batches of this sort of recipe, substituting dried cranberries [for walnuts] and white chocolate chips [for peanut butter chips]"
