I love this recipe!! I use chopped peacons for the nuts. This recipe is absolutely a must try!! These cookies homemade are much better than the store brand.

These are great! Just like my abuela used to make, only to replicate hers exactly I added a half a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough and I used margarine at room temperature. I didn't refrigerate the dough and I had no crumbling issues. Thanks for posting this.

Great cookies! I made mine with pecans. These cookies should not be baked until they are golden brown, they will harden up a bit after they cool. Thanks for the recipe.
