This cookie is a must during the Holidays. Simple to make. You can vary the recipe by replacing walnuts with cashews, pecan or some time I mix in chocolate chip or butterscotch chips.

bleh. These were so disappointing. Bland. Dry. Crumbly. Like eating packing peanuts. Couldn't even bring myself to give them away.

I too have been making these forever! just a tip on the butter use 1/2 cup salted and 1/2 unsalted and that will help with the taste and crumbling. ;)
