These cookies were very yummy. However they were difficult to work with as the dough is very sticky. So don't reinvent the wheel in this process, this is what I found to work. Helpful Hints: First, I used a caramel nut cluster candy from Walgreens and had to half it, so I did not use walnuts in my batch. But I think a Rolo would work better. I did refrigerate the dough overnight. As stated it was sticky, which made rolling the "ball" out difficult. So I wised up after a few and coated my palms and fingers with margarine, which made it so much easier to roll the dough! I didn't divide the dough up equally, I just scooped a golf ball size dough, split that in 1/2 then sandwiched the candy, then rolled into the ball. When baking, spacing is key! Don't place too close together, or it's a bear getting the cookies apart. Also, don't use a cookie sheet that will warp when in the oven or all your cookies will slide together and you'll end up with a mess. I found 8 minutes was not long enough to cook but I found 10 to be perfect! Let cool on cookie sheet until the cookie sheet can be comfortably touched with a bare hand, but not totally cool, then transfer to wax paper, as any sooner the cookie just squished because it wasn't cool enough, and if I left it on too long the caramel that baked through was too hard and stuck to the pan, even with it greased. So, that was my experience. Now I know the tricks, I will make again! Good luck & happy baking!
