Persian Walnut Cookies: Submitted by: Purnima | Date Added: 2 Apr 2016
Listed in: Nuts and seeds

1 1/2 cups finely ground walnuts

1 1/2 cups finely ground walnuts

3/4 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon rose water

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon water

1/2 cup walnut pieces for decoration

Add all ingredients to list

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, mix together the ground walnuts, 3 egg yolks, sugar, cardamom, baking soda and rose water until well blended. Roll teaspoon sized pieces of dough into balls and place onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Cookies should be spaced 2 inches apart. Whisk together the remaining egg yolk and water using a fork. Press a walnut piece into each cookie, then brush with the egg yolk glaze.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. The cookies will appear soft and undercooked but take heart, they will harden considerably when cooled. Allow them to cool on the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

If you can find a way to add how much the recipe will cost that would be great. Left by: Choufouni (7 Apr 2016)

It would be great if you could substitute all that sugar with something else. Left by: Foutouhates (7 Apr 2016)

I remember when I was young, my mom used to make this for us kids all the time. I will ask my wife to try this recipe for sure.
Thank you for sharing.
