Helen's Walnut Ice Cream Cookies

Do not let these cookies decieve you by their name. They do not have ice cream in them, but they were made to be eaten with ice cream, most likely vanilla. These cookies would have been small and would have been a nice accompaniment to a scoop of ice cream for dessert.
