I switched things up a bit ;o), I didn't use all the sweetened condensed milk....I used 2/3 of the can maybe 3/4. It was plenty sweet & still set up well. I used lime marmalade instead of raspberry jam & grated the zest from a lime over top. Omitted the semi-sweet chocolate & almost upped the white chocolate to compensate but didn't....was glad because it really didn't need any more. I also used chopped, toasted hazlenuts instead of walnuts. My son has declared these the best cookies I have EVER made & is begging me to make more. Although I can see how they may be too sweet w/out the tartness of the lime to counteract it. Thansk for the recipe!

These are to DIE for! So rich and lovely! I have made these twice now, and have given out the recipe many times. People love them! They look impressive, too - someone asked me if I had gone to a bakery to get them. They do take a VERY long time to make because of having to wait for things to set and chill, so make sure that you make these a day or 2 ahead of when you need them - they are not something you can whip up the morning before a party. Just a tip - I had some trouble getting the chocolate to melt to a consistency where it would drizzle prettily. My solution - I heated a pan of water to almost boiling and then turned off the heat. I put the white and semisweet chocolates in different Ziploc bags and placed them in the water to melt. Once they were all melted, I cut off one corner of the bag and voila! Chocolate drizzle!

These are delicious. While they're easy to make, they are a bit time consuming (do a step, wait. do another step, wait) but worth it. I took these to a friend's house this weekend and had to run home after the recipe for her aunt. My four year-old has been very helpful finishing the pan. Take the time to toast the walnuts. It makes a difference and lends crunch. I used seedless black raspberry jam. Try them with hot or iced tea.
