My family made these cookies years ago and I thought the recipe was gone forever. Thanks for posting it. Very goooood cookies. Glo

I got raves about this recipe from my friends at our cookie exchange. The only difference is that I used walnuts that were already roasted with sugar, salt, and vanilla.

my mom wanted me to make these. they are so good!

Originally found this recipe on Christmas-Cookies.com about 12 years ago. Have been making them every Christmas. They are a family favorite!

Added dried cranberries for a festive Christmas cookie. Great!
