What lovely chocolate cookies this recipe makes Lynn. I loved the subtle flavor of the chocolate, in this recipe. The aftertaste is perfect and lasts for quite awhile. The soft and tender, yet crisp cookie is full of flavor. The walnuts are a nice textural addition. Thank you so much for sharing this winner with us. Made for Sweet December 2013.

These were delish! I made some like normal and then others I put a Hug in the center after they came out of the oven. YUM! Perfect for CHRISTmas goodie giving! Thank you!

Really enjoyed making these chocolate goodies, & they were a fast seller on the first day of my cookie/candy bake sale, so I ended up making a 2nd batch for the final day! I plan to make these a number of times during the up-coming winter holidays! A great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
