mexican wedding cookies

I like cookies.  I can be happy with many, many different types.  Absolutely no complaints.  But I do have two favorites:  molasses crinckles and mexican wedding cookies.   If those two are part of the offerings, even as much as I like chocolate, those are the ones I go for.  Molasses crinckles I have made for years.  My best friend used to make me the mexican wedding cookies as presents.  But life has gotten in the way.

I decided it was time for me to make them myself.  Actually, with my helper.  They are very simple.  The biggest issue is just getting fresh walnuts and chopping them all up.  I have been enjoying my cookies this week.  My helper likes them too.
