Made these cookies and followed the recipe to the letter, they were perfect! I have tried other recipes for black walnut cookies and this one is the best, the texture of the cookie was perfect.

Easy to put together & taste good too. I thought they would have more maple flavor...the nuts seem to be the prominent though.

I got raves about this recipe from my friends at our cookie exchange. The only difference is that I used walnuts that were already roasted with sugar, salt, and vanilla.

I thought these were quite good. I made 1/2 recipe and got 20 cookies. I cut it in two pieces, then, instead of 3 to refridgerate for 1 hour. They remind me of the marriage of a pecan sandie cookie and a soft maple shortbread flavored cookie. They have both a crisp and soft texture. I liked that they weren't too sweet to. I liked them better the next day: They tasted like a big soft version of a windmill cookie without the spicy after taste or cinnamon.

I was previously not a fan of black walnuts, but was yearly gifted with a bag after a friend's trip to Missouri. This year tried them in this recipe and WOW! Buttery, amazing black walnut cookies. Can't wait 'til next year!
