Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

These cookies are so good...much like a Mexican Wedding Cookie with a bit more nut taste and not quite as sweet. A win-win in my book! With 6 in the family, we managed to eat them all shortly after they came out of the oven. I will definitely make these again. For the amount of vanilla I added 1 tsp. and I baked the cookies for roughly 9 minutes. Made for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game.
