We really enjoyed these delicate cookies. We substituted pecans for the walnuts otherwise recipe was good.

This is a great cookie for Christmas. My family has added this to one of our five favorite Christmas cookies.

These were good, but...next time I will add the rest of the package of white chocolate chips to the dough before baking. I used fresh nutmeg and I will double the nutmeg if not using dried. These reminded me of the mexican wedding cookie or russian tea cake ( same cookie) but not as dry.I will make again with these changes.
