Delicious and very easy to make. I have made these for my family and co-workers on several occasions and they've always been a hit. The entire amount of dough pressed nicely into an 11" x 17" cookie sheet with about 2 in. of unused space at one end of the pan. I've found that cutting them into 24 pieces is a good serving size. Increasing the amount of cinnamon to 1 tsp was not overpowering. Read More

they're nice but i'm glad i added vanilla to the dough and sprinkled it generously with brown sugar and cinnamon prior to baking because i think it would have been bland. Read More

Lordy! Lordy! These cookies were utterly fantastic and surprise they didn't even have chocolate in them!! I found that a double recipe would beautifully fill a large cookie sheet. I finely chopped the nuts in order to nicely cover the entire surface. Who wouldn't love these cookies!! Read More

Funny that I should find this recipe today. My mom just made a huge batch of this type of cookies. I never thought I would see this recipe anywhere else. These are a tradition in my family! It just isn't Christmas without these cookies. They are crispy slightly sweet and just melt in your mouth. Scrumptious! Read More

My coworkers and my husband LOVE these cookies! I'm not a huge walnut fan but the flavor they add is really nice. I only use one cookie sheet (not enough dough for 1 1/2) and even then the cookies come out on the thin side. Still the texture is great. I like to chop up the walnuts as finely as possible; it makes them easier to spread over the dough. Thanks for an easy and yummy recipe that's not the run-of-the-mill cookies! Read More

I loved these bars but I couldn't spread the crust thinly enough to cover 1 1/2 cookie sheets. I ended up doubling the recipe and making a thick pie crust-like bottom to these cookies. I also made a variation with a cinnamon icing on top to add a little kick. Delicious! Read More
