A friend gave this to me because she knows I love black walnuts in anything. They are much like other Christmas cookies you make with pecans in them. But these are GREAT!!

I liked these a lot, I don't think my guests enjoyed them as much. I think it depends on how much you like the unique flavor of black walnuts.

I used regular walnuts (had them on hand)...and added some semi-sweet chocolate chips and a little extra vanilla the first time I made this...EVERYONE LOVED them! And it's so easy! I'm making them again today...it's now the 3rd time in 2 months my boyfriend has requested "those walnut cookie things"...Thanks for the recipe!
