My husband and I really enjoy Mountain Restaurant, which we find to be one of Southern California’s hidden jewels. Among their delicious offerings is a walnut praline shortbread cookie. Can you get us the recipe?

Dear John and Ginny: Mountain Restaurant was happy to share its recipe, which we’ve adapted below. It combines rich, crumbly walnut shortbread with a sweet honeyed praline and chopped walnuts. The recipe makes about three dozen cookies, which is a good thing because it’s hard to eat just one.
