Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

These are delicious! I did not have any vanilla in my cupboard so I substituted maple flavoring....delicious!
My husband couldn't believe how light and tasty they were! He said I could definitely bake them again! Very simple to make - I didn't shell the nuts and the cookies turned out great which was a nice time saver! Will be keeping this recipe!
This has become one of my favorite cookies!I substituted margarine for the butter because of lastose intolerance and reduced the brown sugarand they still turned out super.
As the previous reviewer stated, this is an easy and durable recipe. It did make 4 1/2 dozen good-sized cookies, which turned out nicely browned, yet had a soft consistency.
This is a very well-behaved cookie. The recipe doubles well. The cookies freeze well. All that brown sugar gives them a carmel-praline taste. I baked them for my adult educations classes and it was a nice change from the chocolate chip/oatmeal/butter cookies I've been making. I used a little quick-relaease ice cream scoop to get them on the pans because the batter tends to be a little goopy. Mine needed 12 minutes in the oven. If you're baking them for a crowd you don't know well, you might prop a note beside the plate indicating that they contain peanuts -- some folks are highly allergic. Thanks for a keeper recipe.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
