    mianbao's Note:

    This is from a cookbook issued by the Culinary Arts Institute in 1949, that my mother used as a young bride. I especially thought these cookies were good, though they do take some time. If you can't find Brazil nuts, you could substitute some other variety. Cooking time is for one batch.

      Wonderful flavor of citrus. I rolled them in chopped walnuts. And used orange cherries. The taste is so good with the citrus/walnuts/cherry. Thanks Mianbao :) Made for your win in Bargain Basement tag game

      After i've made some different kind of "brazil nut" cookies, I have to say I love the combination of cinnamon and bazil nut more than of citris(lemon or orange) and brazil nuts.

      Mainbao, these cookies are so good! and very habit forming I may add. I subbed the Brazil nuts for very finely chopped walnuts. I actually made up the dough last evening and baked them this morning. I didn't get 40 cookies, I only got 30 something, I must have rolled them a bit too large, anyway they are truly delicious! thank you for sharing this wonderful cookie recipe!....Kittencal:)
