The smell in my kitchen when I make these cookies, recipe courtesy of my sister-in-law Yaffa M., reminds me of those street vendors in Manhattan who sell candied nuts. Maybe I should consider opening my own mini business on a city corner?
Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for an hour.
Roll dough into balls and refrigerate another 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Bake cookies for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned.
Let the cookies sit for 15 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
I like to mix up the types of nuts because they add such a depth of flavor to the cookie. If you want to stick with one nut only, though, I would recommend almonds. Walnuts are great, but they have an intense flavor that isn’t so popular with the kids.
