      I love walnut anything and just knew I would be drooling over these before they were done, and I was right! They are awesome! Loaded with flavor, light and really yummy with the nuts!

      Very yummy cookies! It's a bit of work (and mess) but the outcome is worth it. (-: Not sure mine turned out as they were meant to but husband likes them...and that's what counts! Made for ZWT4.

      I made this exact recipe for a high school project in the early 1960's. I'm glad the recipe is still around because it's awesome!
