I like these cookies very much. The recipe makes a lot of cookies and they are not too sweet. I have made them with the crunch bar and with just nuts and with vanilla chips. I liked the nuts to best.

I work at an afterschool program with first graders. They loved these and they were so easy to make. It is hard to find a recipe for 25 first graders to participate in but this was one!
