I have never sen a batch of cookies gone so QUICK. They were enjoyed. I added some butterscotch chips to, on half and the walnuts on the other half. Great recipe. Made for Zaar tag.
Oh wow! These are delicious! I decided not to frost mine - DH's preference. I also added butterscotch chips. Wonderful flavor, and overly sweet. Great frosted or not! Thanks Coffee! I'll be making these again! Made for KK Tag
