Very delicate and flavorful cookie! The lard makes them crunchy, and the brown sugar lends a pleseant depth to them, complimented by the cinnamon. I could not for the life of me slice the walnuts - they just crumbled away, but that does not affect the taste, of course. Also I forgot that they would spread, so I placed them too closely on the cookie sheet, and all the nicely rounded cookies went somewhat square! I will definitely make these cookies again - thanks for posting! Made for ZWT6 Germany / Benelux.
