I thought these were very good. I used my food chopper to finely chop the walnuts which made them the perfect size (almost a mince). My only problem which was easily fixed is that i have a tendency to make BIG cookies. I found after my first batch that I used too much dough around the kiss resulting in a palm size flat cookie with a hump in the middle. After that I used just enough to cover the candy and they then came out like the picture. This is a crisp cookie--not chewy at all and not too sweet. the candy inside is a great balance for flavors. Edit one year later: I just made these again for Christmas adn they turned out even better than last year! I followed the recipe EXACTLY as it was written. Last year I subbed butter for margarine and I think that was a mistake! These cookies help their shape and barely spread at all using the margarine. My hubby calls me a "butter snob" because that is usually the only thing I buy. I'm not even sure what made me change my mind and get margarine this year but it was definitely worth it! I'll be using margarine in these form now on! Read More

Not as tasty as I would have expected. It was missing something. Also found the dough to be really dry and crumbled when wrapping around the chocolate kiss. Read More

Besides the two hour wait period it was very quick. I did however had to add about 1/4 cup of milk to the dough because it was a bit dry. They were very good and easy for anyone to make. Just don't be fooled if they don't looked completely cooked as I almost was. 15 minutes is fine. Read More

My only problem with these was there wasn't enough of them! They are wonderful I am making my 2nd batch today only more of them. I did not roll in the icing sugar instead just popped a little piece of marachino cherry in the top while still warm and they were quite pretty and festive. I also used pecans instead of walnuts (don't like walnuts) and they were just dee-lish!! Read More

they came out awsome perfect shape and flavor! I used "hugs" instead of chocolate kisses the combination with the cookie dough is perfect. At first after the time asked you think that they are not done but they are! you just have to take them of the oven and let them sit for 5 to 10 min then they are prefect!!! Read More

These came out great. A little TOO rich/ greasy for my liking but everyone else adored them. I used almond bits in stead of walnuts. They tasted great with the kiss inside! Read More
