Fudge-Iced Walnut Cookies is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from These taste great and letting your kids help with the final touches is a great together time for everyone. I changed the walnuts to pecans and they tasted just as good. I think the fudge was the biggest hit and kept having to chase fingars out of the bowl!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DELICIOUS. I made these cookies with my grandchildren and we had a blast. I made the main part of the cookies and they iced and decorated them, I think more went into their bellies than on the cookies though. We had walnuts and different colored sprinkles out so they could choose their own toppings. It wasn't so much fun cleaning up after but it was well worth it. They loved them and want to make them again for their moms birthday. So sweet of them. I think this will now be a tradition and we will make them every year for their moms birthday. My grandson took some to school to share with his classmates and they also loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i am not really good with baking cookies sooo i tried this one for my friends birthday and it turned out awesome.i didn't have much time to bake so this was just perfect and easy for me.what can be better then having a cookie and fudge together.everything is home based ingredients and u don't need to take an actual day for shopping for them.the sour cream gives a very dense and moist texture to the cookie which i love.u can have fun with family and friends in decorating the cookies with chocolates and nuts and licking the bowl clean :). everyone loved it and i just became a prom from the wilton recipe as usual lol.......
