This recipe makes a huge batch and they stay moist for a long time. I use to send these overseas for soldiers I knew serveing in Iraq. They would always complain that i didn't send enough because they had to share with their fellow soldiers. Also my husband beggs me to makes these every year they are his fav cookies. I was hard finding something to beet peanut butter balls but these cookies did it they are sweet minty and moist and perfect with a cup of milk!
