These lovely little confections are actually delightful little walnut cookies:

"These buttery cookies are so soft, they just melt in your mouth. Almost half of the flour I substituted with ground walnuts, for a slightly crunchy bite. You can make them small, as I did, or even cut out cookies, the decision is all yours, but trust me, you have to make these."
