Mocha Walnut Cookies

Linda Griffith


This recipe is from the book Perfect Chocolates. I made these cookies last Christmas and they were such a hit that I want to share them with my new friends of Just A Pinch. Please let me know how you like them. This recipe doesn't make a bunch of cookies, so if you want to double the recipe, that is perfectly fine. They turn out just as good.
