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.
