Black Walnut Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
These are the first cookies I learned to bake. Grandmother and I made them for the holidays when I was a child. Hulling and shelling those nuts was a difficult and time-consuming job for Grandma. Our whole family enjoyed these yummy cookies even more knowing how much love she put into making them.—Doug Black, Conover, North Carolina
