I woke up thinking about buttermilk cookies. I have never tasted a buttermilk cookie and have never seen a recipe for such a cookie. It was just a dream that I decided I needed to make come true. —dymnyno

I'll bet these are just great! I love waking up with an idea and then creating it. I'm definitely making these (without the walnuts, of course). Thanks for posting them, Mary!
