These are SO EASY to make, and they look like they came from the bakery. You can't go wrong with this recipe. My husband is always the test, and he said these are keepers. The semi sweet chocolate compliments the nuts AND the cookie. I used butter rather than shortening, and it was fine. Excellent Recipe! These will not last long!
