Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a real 'keeper' recipe. It is very different from cookies made with peanut butter. This is a cookie that is a fine caramel flavored base. The chopped salted peanuts are highlighted by the cookies flavor nut unlike a candy bar;
This leaves me with two variations in mind
Melt 3/4 c. Dark Bittersweet or Milk Chocolate Chips with 1 Tbsp. LOL Butter:stirring until melted together. Dip the cooled cookies halfway into the melted chocolate. Place upon a cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Allow to set up before storing in an airtight container with waxed paper between the layers to prevent them sticking together.
The basic cookie dough would be highly complementary to 3/4 c, chopped toasted pecans. Forget using the salted peanuts. Dipping in the chocolate is not necessary but it is a choice you must make.
Best peanut butter cookies I ever made.
I made these only I replaced the peanuts with walnuts, They are very good. But I don't care for peanuts.
