These cookies are always popular at bake sales. I sometimes use 1 cup of coconut instead of the chopped walnuts.

"These cookies were not too bad. I substituted cocoanut for the nuts as our school is a nut free enviroment, but they are nice and moist."

"I used Splenda instead of white sugar. This recipe was even better than I expected. My cookies turned out puffier than the ones pictured, a little like biscuits, and everyone loved them!"
