Reviews for Brazil Nut Cookies
"I tried these the other day. what a hit. everyone loved them. In my oven, I only needed 8 minutes and the bottoms were lightly browned.Yum"
"The Brazil nuts are a nice touch, but I'd add some flavor. Also I am wondering what kind of oven you're using. After trial and error I found that at 350 degrees F the cookies needed at least 22 minutes in the oven to come out crunchy."
"Unusual and delicious. I made a variety of cookies, and of the lot these were the first gone."
