    I made these for my mother's group and they loved it! It has a great peanut taste. I used dry roasted peanuts which tasted great. A great alternative to chocolate chips!

    A little dry but still yummy!

    Andia from South Korea

    I substituted dry roasted peanuts. It was a great substitution but the cookies over-all came out a little dry. I might use more butter next time?
