These cookies came out great and were so easy to make!

The dough was difficult to work with. The cookies did taste good but they looked dreadful as they crumbled to bits trying to slice the logs. This is probably due to chef error but I can't see...

I grew up enjoying these cookies with my great-grandmother. They're not your typical cookie, more spice than sugar, but still delicious.

Very close to my grandmothers recipe. She used pecans instead of walnuts.
