These taste very rich and buttery! I've included the chilling time in the prep time.

These are so easy to make and taste terrific. I am use to having pecans in these type of cookies, but really enjoy the flavor of the walnuts. I also love this cookie for the almond flavoring. Reminds me of these little Danish cookies. I baked the first batch at the 15 minutes recommended and they were just on the edge of burning. So the 2nd batch I baked as 12 minutes and they came out perfect.
