Amish Cookie Recipe

These are a much requested cookie in our house. Todd likes them with Pecans as well as Walnuts – so choose whichever you like.  They freeze, transport and mail quite well.  They don’t get super brown – so don’t overbake waiting for them to brown up!

In some cookies, it is okay to substitute margarine – but these just dont taste or turn out the same if you do substitute.  They’re not bad, just not as good…so use the real stuff.
