Reviews for Walnut Thumbprints
"These are delicious cookies. Everyone loves them!"
"The filling is good, and would go well on pie, sticky buns or other places where a nutty glaze would be nice. The cookie tastes like baking soda, is a bit dry, and not very flavorful. It did bake nicely, it's just not very tasty."
"I just made these last night with my family, easy and delicious!!!"
"The receipe was easy to make i used a mini muffin pan and made an indent in them and filled it with the walnut filling . Simply delicious......"
"Love the recipe, but it only made 18 cookies for me and I was able to use the filling for two batches of cookies."
