Caramel Walnut Blondie Cookies

With a name like this these cookies have a lot to live up to!  I love Blondies but don’t always want to have a bar cookie.  So I took some of the same flavorings as the bars and made them into a drop cookie.  Normally I use pecans in my Blondies but decided to mix it up and use walnuts instead.  Instant hit with Dan and the guests.
