“This makes a *ton* of cookies so no need to double the recipe, make sure you mix this in a large bowl or with your stand mixer there is a lot of batter, these are *not* a sweet cookie, you may increase the brown sugar if desired for a sweeter taste... mini chocolate chips may be replaced for the peanuts --- plan ahead the dough needs to chill for a few hours, prep time includes chilling time :)”
