Easy to make and delicious! The nuts give just the right amount of texture. I will make again but will double the recipe. The first batch I made got eaten too fast!! :-)

Another LOL cookie recipe that is the best! I make these for Christmas every year, along with LOL raspberry almond thumbprint cookie, lemon bars and the chewy jumbo chocolate chip cookies. Everyone wants my recipes - i just tell them to visit!
