I used pecans and added some peanut butter chips. Otherwise, same recipe. I got 36 cookies out of it. They were crispy and the ones that weren't flat ended up with craters in them. They're VERY sweet. I like them, but I won't be making them again.

Coarse-grained sea salt does not melt into the batter, so you experience a crunchy burst with every bite. Use any other nut you like in place of peanuts.
