Praline Cookies

I was looking through my pile of cookie recipes I want to try and foudn this one. I only had 1 egg and 1 stick of butter in the fridge so when I came across this recipe, I was really excited. I also didn't want to have to refrigerate the dough and wait for it to chill, I needed instant satisfaction!
These cookes are sooooooooooo good! When I remembered I hadn't taken a picture of them yet, there was only one and a half cookies left (there was a little bit of an accident when the cookies came out of the oven and were being transfered to the cooling area so there were a bunch of half cookies on the first cookie sheet). I had to try the batter and was a little worried I wasn't going to get many cookies because the batter was so delicious. I definately got instant satisfaction with the batter. I couldn't wait for the cookies to cool enough to hold in my hand to eat one. The burning sensation on my fingers and on my tongue were worth it!!!
Hope you enjoy these as much as we did. I was told I can never make just 1 batch ever again though. They're extremly easy and yummy! Enjoy!!
