Nut Cookies


Take the name of this recipe at face value: You can truly use most any type of nut here, depending on your preference: hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans, cashews, etc. They will all work equally well to create delicious cookies, each with its own unique flavor (or here's a thought: use a mixture for a more nuanced result). Don't be tempted to rush the process; the dough will be much easier to work with after being allowed to rest for an hour.


100 grams nut flour
100 grams wheat flour
50 grams whole wheat flour
80 grams dark brown sugar
100 grams softened butter
6 tablespoons milk

2Knead until smooth and form a ball.
3Chill dough for 1 hour.
4Grease two large baking sheets and line with parchment paper.
5Preheat oven to 350°F.
6On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough.
7Cut the cookies with cookie cutters and place on prepared baking sheets.
