This is a special cookie recipe that my mom has started using about 20 years ago. She cut out from a womens’ magazine, but I’m not sure which one. It is a very unusual cookie, and not very easy to make because it is so fragile, but it is so good! The trick is to chop the walnuts super fine! 🙂
- 1 ½ cups sifted flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 ½ cups finely chopped walnuts
- ¾ cup cold sweet butter
- 6 oz. semisweet chocolate pieces
Mix flour, sugar, and walnuts together. Knead in butter until smooth and firm. Work quickly to prevent butter from softening. Chill dough 1 hour. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 2 inch rounds. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets. Melt the chocolate in a pan over hot boiling water (double boiler). Spread a thin layer of chocolate over the cookies.
