Recipe by Karen..

These are awesome cookies! They are like little pies and they melt in your mouth. The recipe was given to me years and years ago by a co-worker after she brought them into the office and everyone went wild over them.

Made these to give as part of my christmas cookie gifts. Really wonderful. I did use pecans instead of walnuts, since I was out of walnuts, but they are still terrific. I found that they took a little longer in my oven than in your instructions...maybe about 20 minutes longer. Anyway, they were really good. Everyone should try these!
