"These are delicious cookies that my mother made at Christmas, but are good anytime. Try making them using pecans, but any nuts will do. I like them with a cup of coffee. Top these cookies with icing."

These are a great cookie both for those who prefer a less-sweet version (as-is), and for those who like sweet (iced with Icing for Sour Cream Cookies on this site). I agree that they are almost like little scones (not a moist cookie, and they don't spread). I found that they cooked in much less time than noted - my oven temp is accurate, and 13 minutes was plenty, so watch carefully. Love that they're packed full of nuts, and I used golden raisins in my version - a little more subtle flavor. Will definitely make again.

I baked several kinds of cookies this year and these were by far the easiest to prepare and the best tasting, be sure to use the sour cream icing.
