    Delicious, sweet mini tarts that have the consistency of pecan pie, but made with walnuts.

      I can't believe I never rated & reviewed these!! These cookies (my Mom's recipe) have been a Christmas tradition in our family & extended family forever. Almost every year I misplace her recipe & when I do, this is my go to recipe. They're almost exactly the same (if not identical) & no one has ever been able to tell. That being said, these are OUTSTANDING & are ALWAYS the favorite (including mine) in the large assortment of holiday cookies. EVERYONE always makes a point of telling me these are their favorite out of the assorted cookie tins I give for Christmas. They are special too because no one ever knows what they are as they're not a common Xmas cookie (don't know why!) & they're so festive w/ the sifted sugar over the top which reminds me of snow! Not to mention how simple these are to make w/o a ton of crazy ingredients. The dough also freezes amazingly if you want to make it in advance. Ok I'm done gushing..thank you for the wonderful replacement recipe when I can't find mine!
