My grandmother used to make these and what a favorite they are. As I type this recipe, I see her handwriting and remember those good ole days! These are a delicate, cake like cookie with chocolate frosting. The nuts are optional, if you like them add them. Pecans or peanuts taste just as great as walnuts do.
