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:)

Wow. That's what it tastes like! The citrus angle is very unusual and adds to the flavour. I used castor sugar as I find it easier to cream and used pecan nuts. I also 'experimented' with a handful by putting the nut inside the dough, and then rolling it in melted choc. It was lovely however those cooked slightly faster than the others. Thank you for an excellent recipe which I will always make.
