Awesome! I had an old recipe from my mom and after a while they were not turning out right....probably when my marriage was going bad. However, I am married and happy and this recipe rocks! They are delicious.
Mine didn't turn out as nicely as I had hoped. I used butter and omitted the nuts. The only other thing I did differently was to freeze it at the point where it was called to refrigerate it. The cookies spread out really thin and look kinda funny. They still taste great though! I think it must have been an error of mine so I left off the stars.
