Reviews for Horn Walnut Cookies
"My family and I didn't care for these cookies. They taste like snowball cookies (which we also don't like) so maybe if you like them you would like these cookies."
"Really like these cookies! I chilled the dough for about 15 minutes before rolling and lightly dusted my counter to prevent sticking. Wonderful with a cup of coffee."
"My family loves these, and I love making them. They are relatively easy, taste wonderful, and look beautiful on a holiday cookie tray. I have a convection oven , so mine bake for a much shorter time, so watch the first trays carefully, or they might burn"
"I reduced the cooking time to fifteen minutes or else the cookies burned and got hard in my oven. You may have to adjust your cooking time. 30 minutes seems way too long."
"Delicate and tender cookies that look like they are difficult to make but are really rather easy. I make these every Christmas."
