This was very good, the only changes I made was I used no brandy and pecans for my nut prefererence.I recommend this cooky, especially if you are a lover of Mexican Wedding cookies like myself.

I made these cookies for my husband because the recipe sounded like one that his grandmother used to bake for him when he was a little boy. I had to substitute Kahlua for the brandy, but the result was fantastic. This is a simple and delicious cookie. I can't wait to make another batch.

This is a nice recipe for a delicate, light, melt in your mouth cookie. Very much like an ice cream cookie.

Made this recipe today with French cognac & the black walnuts...EXCELLENT!!! The cognac compliments the rich distinctive flavor of the black walnuts PERFECTLY! Better than any pecan nut balls I've ever made or ever eaten. Will definitely do regularly.

These were really good! I didn't have brandy so used bourbon instead and it didn't seem to hurt them! Will make a great addition to my holiday goody plates. Thanks!
