These cookies deserve every bit of five stars. The only tip to pass along is to be sure to chop the nuts into smallish pieces, they are much better if they kind of blend into the texture of the cookie rather than stand out. I am so happy to find this recipe. My local bakery sells these for an arm and a leg, and my husband loves, loves, loves these. He loves these cookies so much that he came home from work ate four of them and then helped me with laundry- without me even asking him to help. These cookies have special powers!

Perfect cookies. Very tasty and crispy. Though it should be noted that you must put the pieces about 2 to 2 1/2 inches away from each other, or else they will touch and bind. =)

This is exactly the recipe my family has passed down for generations and it can't be beat! The only exception is that we use butter-flavored Crisco in place of the butter and shortening. The rolls of dough can also be frozen and used to make small batches of fresh cookies for your kids after school. This one is a keeper!
