A very good chip cookie! I made one recipe with spiced peanuts and dark chocolate. Very good!

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.

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.
