I see this recipe all the time and there are some important steps that are left out, first, if you really want success, chill the dough mixture for at least 4 hours before you roll into balls, and secondly, I find that finely chopped pecans makes all the difference on the world, no kidding, try it.
Oh, and put that mixer away, just mix with a wooden spoon, you must feel this recipe as well as taste it!!!!

My family has made these for generations. They make them slightly different; we take a walnut half and shape the dough around the nut before baking it. It has the effect of receiving a little surprise when you bite into it. 5 stars

I have made these before with the same recipe, except I am not a fan of walnuts. Our family uses chopped pecans. These are amazing and simple. 5 stars

These cookies have been a staple at Christmas in my family. My mother is no longer able to cook, so I am making them and shipping to her this season. Now my daughter is learning how to make them and asks for them each year 5 stars

I am planning on making these again. I'm not sure how much one batch makes because I have to make it for a Christmas Party. 5 stars

This is a great basic recipe, but I have been trying to make these cookies a bit more. However, the recipe I usually use calls for toasting the nuts first, which I think gives the cookie a richer, nutier flavor. 4 stars

I have made this receipe before but I'm going to try Kayla in Indiana's suggestion about adding cinnamon. I love this spice but have never thought of using it in this receipe. I'm going to divide the dough and try it with and without the cinnamon 5 stars

These cookies are a tradition in my house since my mother made them for me every christmas since I was small. Now that I have been making them now for 30 years. I love them!!!! 5 stars
