These are yummy, chocolatey cookies! They're so easy to make, and they look very elegant, like marble! I used chopped walnuts, and they gave the cookies a nice, crunchy texture. The only change I made was to use unsalted margarine instead of butter, and they turned out perfect! Thanks for another great recipe, Jude!

My family has been making these since the 1950's as well! They are pretty much the only Christmas cookie we make! No tweaks needed!

These cookies were a favorite of my family from the time my mother started making them for Christmas back in the 1950s. The recipe was in a flour sack recipe insert.

Absolutely the best!
