This is an awesome cookie. It's a hit wherever I take it. I remember my grandmother making these cookies when I was a little girl and was so excited to find the recipe. This is one you'll want to hang on to!

I made these for the cookie table at my nephew's wedding and they were a great hit!! I have already had a request to make them for the next family wedding , but I'm sure I'll make them again before then

I've been making these cookies for yrs. I suggest flatted dough before baking, I also use chocolate milk for regular milk in frosting, makes a big difference. I skip the nuts, good recipe :-)

I helped my five year old make these for the fair this year. We leave off the nuts. She was so proud, not only did she win first place, she won best of show! We love these cookies!

MY REVIEW

My husband picked these for his holiday cookie this year. I didn't much like baking them at first, being that is was a new cookie among a six hour bake session with a 2 year old. However the next day when I tried one it wasn't long before a double batch went into the oven. I have made a total of 5 batches this year and these are a guaranteed yearly cookie from now on. I used melted chocolate instead of the frosting, it was just easier.
