    NVirginian's Note:

    This recipe originally came from the back of a Diamond Walnut package back in the 1970's. I started baking a lot when I was in high school and my taste testers were my dad and my parent's best friends. These were their friend Bud's very favorites so I made them quite a bit. I thought I lost the recipe but after about an hour of searching I found it in a stack of recipes that I had given to my mom. I hope you like them as much as Bud did!

      The most popular cookie I served at Christmas this year. Absolutely delicious sandwiched with chocolate, mocha or vanilla butter cream. Also iced some with simple icing sugar. Finally sandwiched some with a variety of jams. This is winner.

      We really enjoyed this cookie! Not too sweet - just right! I did not get as many cookies as the recipe indicates, but that is probably because of the size of my cookie cutter. Next time I might roll them into a log, refrigerate, and just cut the cookies in circles. Thanks for the post. Made for Fall PAC, October, 2011.

      Melt-in-your-mouth delicious simplicity. I used pecans and I'm with Bud; these could easily become my favorite cookies.
