    These were cookies my aunt made all the time when I was little--worth the wait and very good! I have never made them with nuts, but I'm sure they are good with them also.

      These cookies are superb! My family loved how chocolatey and soft they were. I mixed 3/4 cup chopped walnuts into the batter, which tasted great. I dropped them by teaspoonfuls, which made 4 dozen cookies. I will definitely make these again, and plan to try mixing other things in for a different taste. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

      Looking at the ingrdients I thought these cookies sounded good, but they were GREAT! The dough is very, very soft even after refrigeration, so I lined my cookie sheets with parchment paper and dropped them by teaspoonfuls on to the paper. I baked the cookies for about 12 minutes as mine were a bit larger. I did get 2 dozen. They are light and cakelike, without being overly sweet. I also added the nuts and loved them. This recipe is one of Zaar's hidden gems. Thanks for sharing a definite keeper! *Made for Fall PAC 2008*

      My mother used to make these at Christmas time. They were my favorite. Mom passed on years ago, and I have been searching for this recipe. Thank you for sharing it. They taste the same as they did when I was a child.
