  2. Chill dough for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

These cookies are delicious. Use a processer to get fine walnut crumbs. A little messy to make but definitely worth it.

Very flavorful, however a little crumbly. Overall I would make again.

Delicious! Made them for Christmas and everyone raved about them. One person asked for the recipe which I e-mailed.
