Persian Walnut Cookies

Persian Walnut Cookies

Persian Walnut Cookies recipe is one of the popular Persian cookie recipes for Norooz (Iranian New Year).

Yield: Makes about 90 bite-size walnut cookies

  • 300 g ground walnuts
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar (about 100 g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla until thick and color turns to pale yellow, about 8-9 minutes.

Persian Walnut Cookies

Add the ground walnuts and mix well.

Cover 3 baking sheets with parchment paper or greased aluminum foil. Using a teaspoon, drop small portions of the walnut mixture on the sheet; make sure to leave enough space between them.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 14-16 minutes or until golden, keep an eye on them (they look soft but it is ok, they start to harden when they cool). Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Then place on a wire rack to cool completely. Store them covered. Serve with black tea.
