Walnut Cookies


Introduction: Cookies are one of the most popular deserts in America. You can find them everywhere: mall booths, groceries stores, restaurants, school cafeterias. They can be thin or thick, crisp or soft, with all l kind of flavors. I had some walnuts in my pantry and I thought that adding them to a cookie dough would bring the American cookie to a new level, a little closer to my Romanian heritage.
