soooo amazing These cookies are probably the best type of desert. 05/06/2012
SOOOOO GOOD I love this cookie. It is like a cross between a shortbread cookie and a Peanut Butter Cookie. I am fixing to make it again tonight and add finally crushed peanuts to it. 03/27/2012
Classic and a favorite! I have made this recipe for 20 years and it has never failed to please. I sent them over to my husband and his squad in Iraq, and was ordered to continue sending them every month for the duration of their tour! The cookies are always crispy on the bottom, a little chewy in the middle, and all around pleasing to the taste buds. 11/30/2011
