Very disappointed...not worth the effort

The only trouble I had with these was getting them formed into some sort of log shape to put in the refrigerator. The flavor is excellent even if they aren't perfect little round things. :)

They are very good and look nice the first time I baked them was 3years ago because my daughter wanted pink cookies and they were so tasty and I never had any problem with the dough

Yummy! These cookies are soft and sweet, just like they look. I used black walnuts that my brother collected and added a teaspoon of vanilla. The dough was very loose and hard to roll into a log, but firmed up nicely. I sliced a little more than a quarted inch thick, so I didn't get quite as many as suggested. Only baked them for 7 minutes. Delish! I will definitely make these cookies again!
