“A VERY good cookie! I enjoyed making these, the instructions are easy to follow. I didn’t change anything, and I did add the walnuts. The cookies are soft and wonderful right out of the oven, and if you microwave the cold ones for 5 seconds they get soft and wonderful again! They have a great flavor. Very yummy! We will use this recipe a lot! Thanks Sharlene!! “
