These cookies were really easy and created a delicate and tender cookie. Perfect for serving to guests. I bought these in a bakery and wanted to bake them at home and this recipe was just as good as those in the bakery! Thank you.

These tasted more similar to "pecan sandies." For those who complained about them not being sweet enough, just roll them around in powdered sugar after baking. It makes the sweetness just right!

These cookies were bland and not nearly sweet enough -- closer to bread than sweetbread. Unworthy of my time and particularly my walnuts!
