These were a HUGE hit. I used both raspberry preserves and fresh raspberries and it really made the difference. Also, I used way more than one cup of walnuts so I could cover the entire outside of the cookie. Everyone was surprised at how moist they were. Also, they looked really fancy. They are my new crowd-pleaser! My Dad is already talking about Christmas Cookies and itâ€™s only February!
