Luisa's Cookie

Today’s post is about a special cookie recipe send me by my special friend Luisa. She works with my sister in Brazil and, although I’ve never met her personally, I know that we have a lot of things in common. She is always stopping by to write comments with kind words, as my other dear readers. This is the best part of having a blog and that makes me really, really happy.

So, this recipe is especially for all of you. Some delicious chocolate walnut cookies. Very crispy, indeed!
