  1. Bring water and molasses to a boil in a saucepan. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a separate saucepan over low heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  2. Pour the molasses mixture into the flour, stirring to form a ball. Fold in chopped walnuts. Drop onto waxed paper by the spoonful, and allow to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.

Allah razi olsun :)

I halved the recipe, but I did need to use a touch of extra butter to get the flour to come together into a dough. I used one reviewer's suggestion of boiling the water and molasses for around 1...
