These cookies were a favorite of my Grandmother. We don't know where the recipe came from, but it's very old. Because of my Grandmother, our entire family loves these cookies. They are definitely an acquired taste but delicious! I am proud to be able to share this recipe with you, the world.

I used pecans instead of walnuts, and changed the flour to be 1 cup rye flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour. These are easy to make! They have a wonderful smell and taste! I love the hidden surprise of the caraway seeds!
