Expert Tips

If desired, baked cookies can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or frosted with a chocolate or powdered sugar glaze. For flavor variations, try one of the following for the walnuts or the vanilla. To substitute for walnuts, use 1 teaspoon cardamom, caraway seed, anise seed, grated orange or lemon peel. To substitute for vanilla, use 1/2 teaspoon rum flavor or almond, orange or lemon extract.
