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.
