"cookies taste great, so delicious! but i did change the recipe.I used margarine instead of butter which is all veggetable, i used prob. too much vanilla or something and didnt add any shreded wheat as i coudnt find it, so i added 1/2 cup oats, as a result the mix was too soft to handle. I added one cup flour and refrigeretad a little so i worked it by hand making flat and delicious cookies. This cookies are just perfect sweet and soft inside and everyone in the family loved them!"

"I needed door prizes for a meeting and remembered seeing this recipe. The cookies are excellent! The only change I made was decreasing the walnuts to 1/2 cup so all the ingredients would fit in my jars. Would also suggest rolling the dough into a ball with hands and then flattening slightly. The cookies stayed together better. Thanks for the recipe, and I will for sure be using it again!"
