An easy drop cookie, and one of my husband's favorites. Use real butter in the recipe.

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.

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