I love the combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. My grandmother used to bake a version of these walnut spice cookies all the time. My grandfather loved them as much as I do. There is something very comforting about the taste to me. During the holiday season, the majority of the baked goods that my family makes all seem to have some combination of these spices. These cookies just taste like home to me.
While these cookies will never win a beauty contest, they are my absolute favorite! I eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner while they are around. Filled with my favorite spice trifecta, combined with the crunch from walnuts and raw sugar, these sweetly spicy cookies are a hit wherever I take them.
Make sure you have your own supply of walnut spice cookies because you won’t be bringing any of these home!
These cookies are great for holiday cookie exchanges and gifts. If you want to mail a package of baked goods this holiday season, these are the perfect cookies. There is no frosting or decoration to mess up, so you can package them securely for transit.
I finely chop my walnuts, but if you prefer, you can rough chop them for a chunkier cookie and more pronounced walnut taste.
