These were okay, but I usually use my black walnuts in my chocolate chip cookies, just like when I was a kid. We had huge black walnuts trees on my grandfather's farm and I never even heard of English walnuts until I left home. I hull my black walnut and store them uncracked for YEARS, then crack them as needed.

This is a keeper. Moist and chewy even after they cooled and easy to make. I only had English walnuts so I used them instead of black walnuts. Halved the recipe since there are only 2 of us in the house and they still turned out great. Will definitely put these in the baking rotation. Thanks for the recipe.

they were okay seems to me there is to much flour in them I think cutting down on the flour would not make them dry!!!

These are very good. I cut the sugar down to one cup. And also cut the walnuts down to 1 cup too.

My Dad gave me some Black walnuts, we normally don't care for black walnuts but made these for my Dad. They were so-o-o-o good. Then I lost the receipe again and plan to make them soon. Don't change a thing.
