This is one of my favorite recipes. I was raised in what is now called silicon valley on the great cookies and pastries of Wilson's Bakery (now closed). These cookies are as comforting as the wonderful oatmeal cookies of my childhood. The absence of sweet spices is key. The addition of walnuts makes them even better, if that's possible.
Very good cookie recipe. They are really easy to make and it's all ingredients that I have on hand. My 2 1/2 year old daughter helped me with them and we had a great time. I will be making these again, my only change is going to be to add some orange zest (I love the taste of orange and cranberry together). Thank you so much for posting. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
