Delicious and well worth all the extra effort this cookie takes. Some changes that I made were to use 1/2 butter, 1/2 butter flavor Crisco. I also upped the cocoa by 1/4 cup and I always, always, always use parchment paper when I bake. With this cookie, it's a must. If a couple of cookies "burst", you will not have a pan to scrub, the parchment will contain the mess. But if you bake these for no more than 8 minutes, bursting should not be an issue. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the cooling rack so they can set up. These were a huge hit last year at our annual cookie exchange and I have been ordered to make them again this year! Oh, and one more thing, if you use pecans in place of the walnuts (though both are divine!), you will have more of a "turtle" cookie, yum!!
