Recipe Comments & Reviews

I hate to say how disappointed I was with these cookies. I don't bake a lot but found dipping the balls in egg yoke and then peanuts really time consuming. They easliy took 20 minutes to cook and then came out fairly flat - not like the picture. But the worst part was the taste - there was hardly any. Even the (Planter's Dry Roasted - not a store brand) peanuts didn't add much taste.
I have been making these every year since 2003 and they are always a big hit! They are easy and delicious.
very yummy would surely make again
I made these cookies 10/24/08...and they are excellent...easy to make....
Great cookie. Peanut taste, but not too peanutty. Got great reviews.
