I grew up eating these and have been making this for YEARS w/ my own kids! It just isn't Christmas without them! I do it alittle different though, I make them without the nuts, I add 1 7oz bag of coconut, 1 teas of vanilla and I add 1 cup of confectioners sugar... they are sweet but I bring them to any Christmas party I goto and I never have to bring any home!

Good recipe, for anyone worried about the raw egg-- they are not needed in order for the recipe to work and taste great!

Very sweet. Kids love them. Fun holiday cookie. Also can roll in shredded coconut.

this is a classic recipe and easy to prepare. I kept them in the fridge and they were still good a week later.

I used less nuts and it tasted great. Brought back a lot of childhood memories as well! :)

If you are concerned about the uncooked egg, you can get around this by using an eggbeater type product which is pasturized.

These treats are so good and so yummy. You do have to let them set for about 24 hours, though so make them WAY in advance!
