My grandmother baked a version of these walnut spice cookies all the time. My grandfather loved them as much as I do. The spice combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice is very comforting 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 walnut spice cookies 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.
Because there is no frosting or decoration that will get messed up, these cookies are great for holiday cookie exchanges or gifts. If you need to mail a holiday sweet treat to someone, these cookies are the perfect choice. I have mailed these to the other side of the country and they have arrived in perfect condition.
Make sure you have your own supply of walnut spice cookies because you won’t be bringing any of these home!
I finely chop my walnuts, but if you prefer, you can rough chop them for a chunkier cookie and more pronounced walnut taste.
