DESCRIPTION

If you like soft, delicious walnut cookies that don’t cause you to strain when you bite into them, these cookies are for you! Avocados perform wonderfully in baking recipes not only because they keep your recipe moist, but the creamy, nutty flavor pairs well with sweet, sugary flavors found in your favorite baked treats. Try pairing your cookies with our dairy-free avocado egg nog recipe.

After you’ve baked your walnut cookies, make sure you store them in an airtight container. To keep them soft, throw a fresh slice of bread in the container with them. Your cookies will absorb the moisture in the bread, keeping them soft and moist for days to come.

FAQ

Are black walnuts good for cookies?

Black walnuts have a vibrant, earthy flavor that some people find too strong, but they do pair well with sweeter recipes. If you’re looking for something a little less potent in your walnut cookie recipe, stick with English walnuts.

What goes well in cookies?

Most people think of chocolate when they think of cookies. However, cookies can be stuffed or topped with just about anything and will still taste delicious. Are you looking for something a little different? Check out our lime cookies with chocolate glaze recipe. They won’t disappoint!
