Chunky Drop Cookies

The night before I make these drop cookies, I measure out the pretzels, peanuts, raisins and chocolate. Assembly goes quickly the next day. —Kelly Ward-Hartman, Cape Coral, Florida

    Nice , big moist cookies. I didn't add raisins, as I don't like them. I chopped up leftover candy that we had in place of the chocolate chips. These were good!

    These cookies are fantastic. I used the salted peanuts and chocolate chips I had on hand and omitted the raisins,they turned out great. Now a favorite.
