Great name for the recipe it's a cookie with a brittle taste to it. Very easy. I did not have the exact amount of the PB chips so I used brittle chips on top with mini chips. Very cute. I'd make these again. BTW the 1-3/4 total hours ready....unless you are waiting for them to cool completely.... Read More

My mom has a recipe just like this and it's a classic. Add a tsp of salt and a 1.5 tsp of vanilla. Also sub out peanut butter chips for nuts. Easy to whip up. Read More

Amazingly delicious! I used dark chocolate chips and salted caramel chips. Also added 1tsp salt and 1-1/2tsp vanilla per another reviewer s recommendation. Very easy and love that there are no eggs so I can make for grandson who has allergies. Read More

This did remind me of a shortbread cookie, as another reviewer mentioned. I put a tablespoon of PB in with the dough, but followed the recipe otherwise. I liked it, though it won’t beat out some of my favorite cookie recipes most of the time. I took it to work though and everyone really liked it, so I’m sure I’ll be making it again in the future and can try some variations out as well. Read More

Not sure why this is called a "brittle". Like another reviewer said, it's a shortbread cookie. VERY sweet. I'll probably skip the peanut butter chips next time. Read More
