Chocolate Nut Cookies

    I was given some of these biscuits as a 'Thank You' gift in the early 90's and they have become a firm favourite in our family. They are also my favourite biscuits to make! They are relatively easy to make and, depending on the size, you can get 60 to 80 biscuits. I've never had a failure with these - even when I once forgot the baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and had to take the rolled balls off the trays and back into the bowl to mix these in!
