I got this recipe from an old friend of my mother. She would put out a select few cookies and appetizers at the holidays and would carefully dole them out to the children of her friends. They were always good and always easy to make as I found out when my mother inherited her recipe box. As always (being from Missouri) using black walnuts as all or part of the nuts in this recipe will make it much better!
