Expert Tips

  • Buckeye candies are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. The name comes from their resemblance to the nut of the buckeye tree.
  • A trick for making drop cookies all the same size: Use a spring-handled cookie or ice cream scoop.
  • These cookies freeze well -- store baked cookies in airtight containers with waxed paper in between layers. Bring to room temperature before eating.
