Recipe Comments & Reviews

I've been making these cookies for years at our annual cookie bake and they are one of everyone's favorites! No matter what else I make...this one is a must-do every year! Loved by both kids and adults! So simple, so yummy!
DI make these cookies every year and give as gift. It is October and everyone is already asking for them.
This recipe is a family favorite! It is easy to make and the cookies are pretty too - a nice addition to any cookie tray.
The Land O Lakes cookie book I have calls for 6 oz of brickle bits which is about 50% more than this recipe. If you really love the brickle bits increase the amount!
Amazing cookies!! My favorite non-chocolate chip cookies
My teenage boys love this recipe. It is a family favorite!
I make these several times a year. Tender and slightly chewy, sugary and buttery... what more could a person ask for in a cookie?
These cookies are always a hit, especially with adults. They are super easy to make. Just the thing to take to the church bake sale or put in holiday cookie baskets.
Very easy, tasty, crispy cookie. Makes for a nice change of taste.
very simlpe, you and your family will love them
