Just to clarify, we have 6 people in our family and most recipes have to be doubled at least. So, naturally I started making a double batch of cookies. That's a lot of cookies!! And you know, I didn't realize what I was doing until I put the flour in. Oops!
Anyway after figuring that out, my mom and I laughed and added coconut to them on a whim. The cookies turned out pretty good. The peanuts gave it more of a peanut butter cookie taste and the coconut gave it a nice chew. There were so many I rolled them into balls and froze them in qt. size bags. It was fun and I learned from my mistake.
Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
