Walnut Cookie

About this Recipe:

Persian style walnut cookies. Very delicious and an absolutely perfect choice of cookie for Norouz.

Main Ingredients:

Egg Yolks: 4 (extra large)
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Vanilla: 1/4 tsp (extract or powder)
Walnuts: 3+1/2 cups, coarsely chopped
Lemon Rind: 1/4 tsp (from one lemon, optional)


1. Preheat oven to 325 F.

2. Beat egg yolks and sugar until very thick and plain color, for about 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the vanilla, chopped walnuts and lemon rind (optional) into the yolk mixture.

4. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place small mounds (about 1 tbsp) of the batter on to the parchment-lined baking sheet 2 inches apart.

5. Bake for 10 minute or until cookies are dry and firm.

6. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 5-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
