sifted all-purpose flour
cream of tartar
These cookies were really easy and created a delicate and tender cookie. Perfect for serving to guests. I bought these in a bakery and wanted to bake them at home and this recipe was just as good as those in the bakery! Thank you.
These cookies were bland and not nearly sweet enough -- closer to bread than sweetbread. Unworthy of my time and particularly my walnuts!
These tasted more similar to "pecan sandies." For those who complained about them not being sweet enough, just roll them around in powdered sugar after baking. It makes the sweetness just right!
Very quick and easy to make. A nice tender cookie. I added salt (1/4 t). Husband and son love them!
Arlene, my husband LOVED these! Though, I prefer a little bit sweeter cookie, they were light and easy! I even added a few drops of food coloring and my cookies came out a beautiful PINK! Thanks! ...Cristi White, Phoenix, AZ
I made changes to the recipe because as I was making these, I found I didn't have the ingredients I thought I did! I only had 3/4 cup shortening, so I added 1/4 cup oil. Without cream of tartar, I found that a sub would amount to 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder. I used pecans, not walnuts. If I can still rate this favorably, then I must say, "Delicious!"
They taste like baking soda, I even tried cutting down on it when I made them a second time. Big disappointment for me, I loved these cookie from the bakery near my home as a child.
Delicious Light Cookie! If you added some almond extract, could also pass as an almond cookie. Very, very good and oh so easy!
