These cookies are absolutely wonderful. They are my standard recipe for making my version of "Snickerdoodles" - they are much better than any snickerdoodle recipe I have ever found. I have been making them for nearly 40 years. I hadn't made them for a while and had to search through some cookbooks to find the recipe again. Try them; you won't be disappointed if you like snickerdoodle-type cookies. The finely chopped walnuts add something, but can be left out of the topping if a nut allergy is a problem.
