Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Nut Cookie Recipe

This nut cookie can be made with one of the following nuts; pecans, or walnuts. This recipe is over 90 years old and has been modified.

I have not had a call for gluten free nut cookies, so do  experiment with Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix just substitute the same amount as the flour.

If you are using the Gluten Free Mix you will not need to add Baking Powder or Salt

It is a simple recipe with minimal ingredients and no butter.

Bake at 325 degrees for 7-10  minutes or until done, do watch the cookies do not burn.  If the tops are firm to the touch they are done! 

In a small bowl using a fork or small whisk mix and set aside:

1 Large Egg

2 Tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil

Sift together in electric  mixer bowl:

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Now Add Egg and Oil mixture to dry ingredients, then add:

2 teaspoons Lemon Juice

1/4 Cup Milk (half and half can be used if you like)

Mix until a soft dough is formed, then add:  

1 Cup of Chopped Nuts of your choosing

Mix well and drop by small spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper allowing space for spreading.
