These Walnut Spice Cookies taste like home to me. My grandmother used to make these cookies all the time. The recipe came out of one of her old cookbooks. I was so happy that I was able to convert it successfully to gluten free. While Gramma made these cookies year round, I tend to only make them during the holiday season. It would be bad if I baked them more often because I eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner as long as they are around.
These cookies may never win a beauty contest and even dressed up, they are certainly not the prettiest of holiday cookies, they are delicious! Filled with my favorite spice trifecta, combined with the crunch from walnuts and raw sugar, these sweetly spicy cookies are a hit wherever I take them.
I love the combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, there is something very comforting about that combination to me. Many of my family’s holiday recipes have this combination of spices in them.
These cookies are perfect for holiday parties and cookies exchanges. Make sure you make some for yourself because there won’t be any left for you to bring home!
