Walnut Cookies #Dairyfree for #CookieDay (Walnussbroetle}

We are on a cookie baking roll...yes, we are.  This is the time of year we have dessert every single night after dinner.  Yes,  we are having cookies - it is the only time of year that dessert is standard in our house.  There is something magical about this time of year, and the scent of cookies in the air...

Today we made Walnut Cookies {Walnussbroetle} and Mia Rose was my after school helper.  This is a very easy recipe - but you need a little bit of time as the dough needs to rest in the fridge for at least an hour.  If you like walnuts, the wait is very much worth it as they are delicious...

    least one hour.
