Retro Holiday Cookies: Walnut Cups

by Melody Kettle

Walnut Cups or "Tassie's," as Grandma more frequently called them are what I classify as an "adult cookie." As a kid, Tassie's were not my cookie of choice, but as an adult - I love them!

These cookies are quite impressive and relatively simple to make. Enjoy!
