Riffraff, These cookies are melt in your mouth good.So simple and easy to make too.You must roll them in powdered sugar the second time though. after cooling as the powdered sugar kind of soaks in to them while hot. Thanks for a great recipe. Darlene Summers

These are great! I love cookies that aren't overly sweet so I skipped the powdered sugar step and they were perfect for my tastes! Thanks!

These were really easy to make. I made two batches to freeze for my 4th of July party. I used pecans for one batch and walnuts for another. Thanks for guessing the correct eliminaton on Amazing Race Riffaff - these are terrific!
