I don't recall where I got this recipe from but we like these cookies. You can use full fat products if desired.

I love these cookies! We used to buy them in the mountains when I was a child and I've been looking for the recipe for years. These are delicious!
My mother made these for us when we were kids. She never used the nuts, but that doesn't take anything away from these cookies. Yummy, and easy to make too.
has anyone tried making this with Splenda? - it would save 768 calories, but might reduce the number of cookies made since youuse 1/2 c Splenda for 1 c sugar.
