    I made these this week for my husband to take to work. I used what I had on hand..pistachios and a bag of the white and semi-sweet Nestle swirled morsels. The cookies turned out excellent and the best comments came from one of my husband's co-workers who wants me to open a bakery! Great tasting cookie for chocoholics!

    tasty cookies

    JUDY DELPERDANG from CLEAR LAKE, IA

    I made these cookies for a work 'snack' day (employees are asked to donate to a select cause - relay for life, juvenile diabetes, etc. - for unlimited snacking). They seemed quite popular. I happened to have macadamia nuts on hand, and I love chocolate and peanut butter. I thought it could have had a stronger peanut butter flavor, but otherwise they were quite tasty.

    Oh So Good

    Janice Fraser from SAN FRANCISCO, CA

    These cookies are so very good. My favorite flavors, chocolate and peanut butter. I substituted walnuts for the macademia because that is what I had on hand and I couldn't wait to try these. Next time I will use macademias.

    ELINOR MALBLANC from WINCHESTER, OH

    My family really liked these cookies. This will be a recipe that we make often--especially at Christmas time. They are easy to make also.

    Very yummy!!

    RACHEL KERN from WHITEHALL, PA

    I just made these cookies yeseterday and I'm really not a nut person, but these are exceptionally good. I used white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips and I also got almost 7 dozen instead of 5. I will add these cookies to my never ending list of cookies I bake for christmas every year. They will be a big hit I'm sure.
