Rosh Hashanah Honey-Walnut Cookies
A sweet treat to celebrate the Jewish new year!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; mix in the walnuts.
- In a separate large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar together with an electric mixer until fluffy; stir in the honey, vanilla extract, and egg until thoroughly combined. Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients just until well combined (don't overmix), and chill the dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.
- Scoop up about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie, and roll into a ball; place onto the prepared baking sheets.
- Bake until the cookies are just puffy (or a little bit flat in the middle for a gooey texture), 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on baking sheets for about 5 minutes before removing them to finish cooling on racks.
