I invented this recipe last year and my family continues to beg for more. If you like, you can substitute pecans for the walnuts.

My German grandmother has made these for the past 7 decades. After the mixing process, she divided the dough into 2 logs & refridgerated for 2 hrs. Sliced 1/4 inch rounds, placed 1/2 glazed cherry on top, brushed with egg yolk. Delicious! Read More

Absolutely delicious but too sweet. I used 1/4 cup of brown and white sugars the 2ND time I made these because the 1/2 cup each was sickening sweet; other than that a very good recipe. Read More

my mom has baked these for years around the holiday season. Try rolling them around in powdered sugar when they cool. They will go so quick. Read More
