If you like black walnuts this is a very light, delicious cookie and this recipe makes a bunch!



These cookies are delicious. I did not have any shortening so I used 1 cup of butter. They are truly an old fashioned delight.



100% amazing!!! A truly, old fashioned, delicious cookie. Thank you! My family and friends loved them. The only cookie tray left empty. "We beat the chocolate chip cookies!!!"
