This recipe is great! I have been making them for a couple of years now for my husband, and they are his favorite. If you turn down the oven temperature to 350, the cookies are soft and chewy. People who don't even like nuts love these cookies. I will be using this recipe for many years to come.



followed excatly except only baked 8.5 mins were good when warm but started firming as they cooled and an hr later were so hard that you had to use thyem as dunkers. They were baked on parchment at 350. as dunkers they rate a 5 stars



These were a big hit with people in my office. Not too sweet, for the nut lover.
