These cookies were really easy and created a delicate and tender cookie. Perfect for serving to guests. I bought these in a bakery and wanted to bake them at home and this recipe was just as good as those in the bakery! Thank you. Read More

These cookies were bland and not nearly sweet enough -- closer to bread than sweetbread. Unworthy of my time and particularly my walnuts! Read More

These tasted more similar to "pecan sandies." For those who complained about them not being sweet enough just roll them around in powdered sugar after baking. It makes the sweetness just right! Read More

I made changes to the recipe because as I was making these I found I didn't have the ingredients I thought I did! I only had 3/4 cup shortening so I added 1/4 cup oil. Without cream of tartar I found that a sub would amount to 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder. I used pecans not walnuts. If I can still rate this favorably then I must say "Delicious!" Read More

Delicious Light Cookie! If you added some almond extract could also pass as an almond cookie. Very very good and oh so easy! Read More

Delicious cookie - and easy! I tweak by using almond extract instead of vanilla and adding 1-1/2 tsp. cardamom to the flower. It's one of the yummiest cookies I've ever made. Read More
