  • “I love this recipe!! I use chopped peacons for the nuts. This recipe is absolutely a must try!!These cookies homemade are much better than the store brand.”

  • “These are great! Just like my abuela used to make, only to replicate hers exactly I added a half a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough and I used margarine at room temperature.I didn’t refrigerate the dough and I had no crumbling issues. Thanks for posting this.”
