What a surprising cookie! I did expect a peanut butter taste and it's not that at all. It is a really delicious, really different cookie and everybody loves them -- and asks for more. Their popularity means I have to keep making them and I still haven't figured out how to get "finely" chopped peanuts. Mt hand chopping device won't chop finely and my food processor turns peanuts into dust. So I finely chop a cup of peanuts by hand - ugh. But these cookies are worth it!!
