These are wonderful and beautiful but I didn't add the nuts and I put mini chocolate chips in the bottom chocolate half of the cookie. I roll them out with floured hands and flour on my board. The dough is sticky without the nuts. They are beautiful and people think they are better than at a bakery. Great holiday gift.

Great looking and great tasting - these are always a hit with friends and family. The dough is easier to shape into logs if first refrigerated until firm.
