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!

These cookies are loaded with lots of tasty ingredients - everything but the kitchen sink! Everyone in our family knows you have to be quick on the draw to get your share. Even though the recipe makes a big batch, folks are left asking, "Where did all the cookies go?"
"I love to bake, especially for friends," says Penny Clawson of Lititz, Pennsylvania. "These cookies are a particular favorite I make for gatherings in the fall. They look great and taste even better...plus, they're the first treats to disappear when I serve them!"
These traditional Polish treats will keep for a long time in an airtight container. One Christmas, I sent a batch to my sister, but the box got lost. She received it 12 days later ... and the cookies still tasted great!
I first made these rich and tender cookies as a teenager and now make them for my husband and our two sons. The smiles on their faces are well worth the time and effort. —Michele Fenner, Girard, Pennsylvania
