  1. Foarte buni, i-am facut si eu de nenumarate ori. Si au placut la toata lumea care i-a gustat.
    Numai ca eu toc nucile cu cutitul si ies crocante dupa coacere ;).

    • In fiecare an, de sarbatori, fac si retete care le pot face cu copiii. (Asa imi recastig bucataria, ca dupa o reteta ei se plictisesc…)
      Niciodata n-au lipsit thumbrints cookies. Reteta asta e buna, si-atat; nu si-a castigat locul in lista urmatoare de Craciun. (Acolo ajung numai cele speciale, astia sunt obisnuiti.) Ah, si locul nu-i garanta ca ajungea si pe masa…
      Eu fac o lista lungaaaaaa…si ma opresc cand nu mai am timp. :)))
      Trag cu ochiul si la reteta ta, daca garantezi pentru ei, e suficient pentru mine.
      Te pup.

  2. Pai nu, ca eu n-am pus pe nicaieri reteta. Si in plus, e aceeasi ca a te. Unica diferenza sunt nucile tocate la cutit. Ele se rumenesc in cuptor si devin crocantoase.
