This recipe was slightly modified from a recipe shared with me by Tanya, a pal from church. I extra a lot more walnuts and subbed half the flour with total wheat. Tanya, thank you so considerably for sharing this! Hope you all take pleasure in them! Really, I’m pretty specific you will be smitten and will make them more than after!
