My husband grew up on nut horns and I lost his mother's recipe. I tried this one yesterday and before the second batch was out of the oven he had the first batch almost completely gone with the help of a couple of our boys who "don't like nuts in anything".This afternoon I saw where there was only 1/2 dozen left. He told me I could make them once a week and he would be happy. I will happily use this recipe again and again. It was a huge hit in our house. 5 stars

These cookies are delicious! I also sprinkled with powdered sugar as they cooled. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Thank you so much for this recipe! It is an instant family favorite. I can't wait to serve it at my Christmas party. I have been trying to find a good recipe with no hope for years. My mom grew up on these and I wanted to make them for her. She actually moaned when she tasted them. Thank you for that, it felt good to give her a little back. 5 stars
