I have been making these cookies for Christmas for many years. We love them. I was about to post the recipe when I saw that Tonkcats had already done so. Thanks.

My DH thought these were the best of the best!! Double chocolate!! he said, and I must say they smelled out of this world!! Even though I can't eat them, with a reaction like that from DH they deserve at least a 5*!! I got 46 cookies and I used veggie shortening, I will be making these again, before Christmas unless I can find a hideing place!!! than ks for posting.

My husband would give these a 5, I'm sure, but my issue was HOLY COW they are so SWEET! I had a sore mouth after eating two. They were super-easy and fast to bake. NExt time I think I might reduce the amount of sugar (maybe to half) and up the nuts, but I'll chop them more finely next time so they mix better through--Lots of my cookies turned out to be walnut-free (and I love walnuts). Thanks for the really interesting combination of flavours!)
