"Great cookie as written but even better with the addition of 1/2 cup each of oatmeal and white chocolate chips! Not only do they look pretty but taste great. As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor I love trying recipes that use items I currently have on my pantry shelf. A quick, tasty cookie!"

"These are great! Very easy and yummy. Also easy to tweak...I have made them without the walnuts, I've added some orange zest when I want a little more orange flavor, or you could add some white chocolate chips instead. easy to double the recipe, too."
