Delicious walnut cookies that are made with simple ingredients and easy to prepare. They make a great snack and also yummy edible presents!

Hi, everyone! Crunchy and nutty Walnut Cookies, easily prepared with simple ingredients, is the recipe for today. This is a recipe from the cookbook, ‘Del Blog A La Mesa’ from my Chilean fellow blogger, Pilar Hernadez.

She is the culinary mind behind the bilingual food blog, En Mi Cocina Hoy.

This is a simple recipe to prepare and requires no advanced skills. It essentially involves beating flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, eggs, salt, and walnuts in the bowl of a mixer, then rolling the mixture into balls, and baking… Voila, there you have it– amazing walnut cookies that are ready to be devoured with your favorite beverage such as milk, coffee, tea, or whatever else you may prefer.

Can’t believe it?

Well, just check out Pilar’s recipe!

Here she is, in her own words:

“Hello!
I’m Pilar Hernandez. I was born and raised in Chile. Went to medical school there and then moved to Houston, Texas in 2003 without knowing how to cook and speaking no English.
I still remember the first time I went to the grocery store. I almost cried out of frustration, not knowing what brands to buy or which food was equivalent to the foods I grew up eating.
Fast forward: today I’m a happy food blogger at En mi cocina hoy and mom. Welcome to my South American Kitchen! Where I will show you how to cook Chilean food with American ingredients, you find in your supermarket. I’ll challenge you to try exotic fruits like lucuma or maqui, and our favorite cereals wheat berries and quinoa.
Easy and delicious walnut cookies. Perfect to make with the kids.
My mom used to make trays and trays of cookies all homemade and very well presented for family functions, birthdays, Christmas, almost any reunion was an excuse to make lots of cookies. These walnuts cookies were always present, easy to make, and perfect with tea or coffee. One of my family favorites. I learned to make them young, and now my seven-year-old is in training.”
Thank you, Pilar, for sharing your scrumptious recipe with us, and also for putting a smile on our faces. Sweets make life joyful and exciting!
I hope you try these delish walnut cookies and have a sweet week!  Please don’t forget to stop by Pilar’s blog and say hello!  Her blog is filled with yummy South American recipes, both in English and Spanish.
See ya soon!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover a baking tray with a Silpat or parchment paper.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder. In a bowl with the mixer on low speed or by hand mix the butter with the sugar and the pinch of salt until it is all integrated. About 3 minutes with the mixer.
  3. Add one egg and one egg yolk, continue beating at low speed until thoroughly incorporated. Add the sifted flour and baking powder and combine at low speed or working with a fork, you will get a soft dough. Form 30 balls 1" in diameter.
  4. Roll the balls of dough into the remaining egg white, and then toss with the chopped walnuts, place on the prepared tray and bake for 15-18 minutes until they are brown on the bottom. Let cool on a rack and serve cold. Store in an airtight container for a one week.

      In mine too, Deb! My girls are crazy for cookies and these are no exception. I prefer mine with a good cup of coffee and them, with milk. 😉
