Walnut Refrigerator Cookies
Walnut Refrigerator Cookies Recipe Card Front

The vintage recipe card owner notates that the recipe is from August 1951 and is from Companion Pin Up.
I have searched and cannot find what type of publication that Companion is. Was it a magazine? A cookbook? If you know, share by commenting below.
UPDATE – thanks to reader Brenda we know now it’s the Women’s Home Companion magazine.
Now, why in the world would this WALNUT recipe say add 1 cup of chopped walnuts or 4 squares of chocolate. Am I reading this wrong? If you can steer me in the right direction, please comment below.
