    nancyal's Note:

    these are delicious. i do not use the walnuts as we are allergic to them, but i do dust them with confectioners sugar as it makes them look prettier. i have had this recipe for over 20 years so i do not remember where i got it. prep time includes 1 hour chill time.

      I used to make these with my grandma when I was a kid. We would chop those walnuts until they were almost powder. We rolled them in the powdered sugar as soon as they were cool enough to touch. I can't wait to make these with my kids.

      This is a recipe from Hershey. I have it in a cookbook from the company. I make these every year for Christmas and they are wonderful! I omit the nuts, though, because the kids never liked them.

      Delicious cookies! I used "candy cane" kisses - white chocolate with bits of candy cane. They were nice, but next time I would use something chocolate. I was lazy and thought I could skip the chilling part. My cookies seemed to hold together fine. They spread quite a bit and I'm thinking they wouldn't have done this had I followed the instructions. Next time I won't cheat.
