Walnut Cookies Recipe

Walnut Cookies Recipe

I love espresso coffee after dinner. I do not like sugar in my coffee, but I like to have something sweet (like a cookie) to accompany the coffee. Being health conscious, I have been searching for a cookie that wasn't too sweet, good and nutritious. I have finally achieved what I wanted. In fact, these little 'cookies' are almost too healthy to be called cookies. They are so very easy to make. You only need a mixing bowl and basic kitchen utensils. I love recipes like this… perfect for the times when you want to bake something delicious but don’t have time for something complex.

Walnut Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Walnut Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
