Very tasty! My crust wasn't at all crumbly as one reviewer said her's was. But I pressed the crumbs VERY firmly into the pan...maybe that's the key. I did add peanuts & I did let them sit in the...

These are good bars. I used unsalted peanuts as that was all I had, I think it would best with salted peanuts. I just used one whole egg for the crust, I didn't see the point in just using the...

These were great, everyone loved them. I don't make them often because you just can't stop eating them. Very addicting.

Excellent, almost like a candy rather than just a cookie. Very good.

So I'm going to be one of those people I hate. Yep, that's right, I'm going to rate a recipe I changed. I promise it's in the spirit of giving though! I had seen a recipe almost identical to ...

After making this the first time, I constantly get request to bring this to parties and to work for snacks. It's so original!!
