This is an old recipe from the 50's and was very popular for dads lunch pail..kids liked them too.. sorta like a shortbread cookie; I think dad brought this recipe home from work , after trying one from one of his buddy's at work...like he did with the cherry winks...mom got a lot of recipes that way..always good and dad approved.
In a food processor with a metal blade of in a blender, place the nuts and process till coarse. Add 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and process until fine; set aside.
