    Elisabetta47's Note:

    There are several recipes posted which are similar to this, but by the Gods of the 60's, this is the basic one so many of our bridge-playing, menthol-cigarette-smoking, cream-of-mushroom-soup-casserole-making mothers had ready for us after school. I do the same for mine (without the bridge, cigs or Campbells) and they are always devoured. The recipe doubles and triples, butter substitutes well for the shortening and I use whatever nuts are on hand - they all work.

      Wrote this one down for my recipe box! These are so delicious, and quick to put together with what I normally have on hand. I used Froste

      This is my NEW favourite cookie. :)I only wish I could give this more stars. This gem is buttery like a shortbread, and slightly chewy. Very easy to make, but you do need to use your hands to get the final ingredients worked in properly. I ended up with 48 cookies that won't last long at all. Gave a few to our neighbours, who also thought they were amazing. (Hi Jenn. :) ) Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
