Sweet and Simple Coconut Walnut Cookies

Posted in Cakes and Cookies

I’m one of those crazy people that like their kitchen cupboards as clean and empty as possible. Well, not empty per say, but functional. I mean, I don’t like it when I have stuff lying around, perhaps expired or just no longer usable or needed. I like to know that when I open my cupboard I have exactly what I need and that it’s all tidy. Well, what I want and what I have is sometimes two completely separate things. Keeping that in mind; I was going through one of the kitchen cupboards the other day, and found 1/2 bag of walnuts. Surprisingly enough, there was another one there only sealed. Why would I buy a new bag if I still have the old one? Only god knows. But now I was facing a new “challenge of the day”, what to make with as many walnuts as possible.

Well, it was pretty obvious to me, something sweet! So I added some ingredients and hoped for the best and guess what? It worked. Yummy walnut cookies! Tadaaa!!!
