* you can also use shortening or margerine or half and half instead of butter. shortening or vanaspati will help the cookie from spreading. however, i personally prefer to use butter as it gives a better flavour and makes the cookie spread out and chewy.
* while flattening the cookies with the fork, be sure to dip the fork in flour as otherwise the mixture will stick to the fork.
* the cookies keep cooking on the baking sheet from the heat even after you take out the baking sheet from the oven. that is why i prefer to take out my cookie earlier than overcooking.
* you can also put the peanuts in the mixture for some crunch.
* let your children help you with mixing or adding the flour to the mixture. i have a 2-year old who loves to help me whenever i am baking these cookies.
* these are soft and chewy cookies - very rich and delicious.
* these stay well in an air-tight container for several days.
* just not my daughter and husband, my in-laws love these too.
