Walnut Cookies

Walnut Cookies, is my all-time favorite Walnut cookies. As soon as you bite one, it breaks up into small granules in your mouth. With every grind you feel the rich flavor of Walnuts oozing out. When made to perfection, they attain the much desired granulated texture due to added Walnut powder. I would suggest you to savor each one by serving them warm with any hot beverage (Not in Sheldon Cooper’s Way though).

3 cup of All Purpose Flour/ Maida
1 Cup Sugar
 1 Cup Butter
 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
 1 tsp Almond Extract
 3 tbsp Warm Water
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts
½ Cup Walnut Powder

**Tools Used: Hand Mixer, Spatula, Whisk, Bowl, Cookie Pan.

1)     Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease the cookie pan with butter and cover the bottom with butter paper.
2)     In a bowl sieve flour and Salt. We will call it Bowl 1 from now onwards.
3)     In another bowl mix together the Butter and sugar until the mixture gets fluffy and then add vanilla extract, almond extract and warm water. Mix well. Let’s call it Bowl 2.
4)     Add in flour into butter/sugar mixture (i.e. Bowl 1 to Bowl 2) and mix it well with spatula until everything’s get well incorporated.
5)     Add in Walnut powder and chopped Walnuts into the above mixture and mix them well. Cover the cookie dough and leave it for at least 30 minutes.
6)     After 30 minutes, place cookie dough on baking sheet with help of small sized ice cream scoop leaving enough space in between cookies.
7)     Bake them for 25-30 minutes and it’s done.
1) Don't over mix the batter.
2) Avoid Salt if you’re using Salted Butter.
