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.
This recipe is great! It is my first year really trying to bake. I found this recipe because it mixed a great kind of sugar cookie taste with milk chocolate, my favorite. I did not use the nuts either as my family does not care for the taste. I have a feeling this cookie will be a hit at the holiday party this year! Thank you for the delicious recipe!
So You are who I have to thank for this recipe! Last year, before I joined Zaar I was looking for cookies to bake for Yule. I was pretty sure the recipe came from this site, but never positive since I was looking all over the web. These have now been dubbed a family traditonal cookie for the Holidays! (which is a pretty big deal! There are only 2 other "Must Make cookies") So Thank you so much for posting this!
Nancy--I am soooo glad I saw this recipe. I made these in 2nd grade for a cookbook my class did --and I couldn't find the cookbook. I love these so much--they are wonderful and the perfect chocolate fix!
