Walnut Cookies

I made these today and they were wonderful: both chewy and crispy at the same time. You can make them as little sandwiches between two cookies or just spread some melted chocolate over the top.


  • 1 3/4 Cup walnuts
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C ). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    2. In a cuisinart grind the walnuts until the are fine, but be careful they don't become nut butter. Stop the Cuisinart and put in the eggs whites, sugar, and pulse until blended. Drop dough by small teaspoonfuls, three inches apart, onto the lined cookie sheets. They spread a LOT.
    3. Bake 10 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be lightly browned. Let cool slightly before removing from sheets. If the cookies are stuck, they need to be baked a little longer.
    4. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or over very low heat. Spread a drop of chocolate over the top of each cookie and freeze for a few minutes, just long enough to harden the chocolate
