There are a lot of "versions" of this cookie recipe out there. Some use nutmeg, walnuts, pecans, go low heat for a long time, or super high heat fast. This recipe is solid, easy and no fuss. Save it, ignore the others and make it a holiday tradition, I did!?

I love these cookies and this is a great recipe! I used pecans instead of walnuts because I had some on hand. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Sweet December holiday event, 2013

I like to add some cream cheese in place of about half a stick of butter. They are so yummy. Grew up in a hispanic neighborhood in Los Angeles, so happy memories! x

This was my first time making them. I hosted a cookie exchange party and they were a hit. Very easy and delicious!

Fantastic! My grandmother included these as party of her annual Christmas cookie platter and these are just like I remember. Yum! (Only sub was pecans for the walnuts.)

This recipe was super easy. The only thing I recommend is either decreasing the salt or leaving it out completely.

This recipe wasn't the best there are better ones out there. Also when I made this it only made 20 so I increased this by half.
