Oregon has an abundance of nuts, and these nutty cookies are popular with the ladies at my craft club. Growing up during the Depression, my mother taught us to use what was available and said, "It doesn't have to be expensive to be good." She was right! —Selmer Looney, Eugene, Oregon
“I came up with this recipe myself,” writes Bethany Thayer of Troutville, Virginia. “After trying several low-fat chocolate chip cookie recipes that were puffy and cake-like, I experimented some and came up with these.” Good-for-you walnuts give them a great crunch, too.
A busy competitive figure skater came up with this high-energy recipe herself. The cookies are loaded with nuts, chips and fabulous flavor. Coaches at her skating rink are always snitching two or three when she brings them in!
