“My grandmother used to make these and what a favorite they are. As I type this recipe, I see her handwriting and remember those good ole days! These are a delicate, cake like cookie with chocolate frosting. The nuts are optional, if you like them add them. Pecans or peanuts taste just as great as walnuts do.” - by Nancy Dorman

"If I could give these 10 stars, I would. These are the absolute best chocolate cookie. I have made them a couple of times and used regular all purpose flour and they still turn out great. Definitel..." See morey frost with the chocolate butter cream frosting. We love these so much!!!!"
"Wow!These are amazing! I used all purpose flour instead of cake flour. I also had some whipping cream that needed to be used up so I used that instead of the buttermilk. These taste alot like brownies..." See more in a cookie form! If butter was used instead of the shortening they would really taste like brownies! These will become a family favorite for sure! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
