Expert Tips

Use a small or mini-food processor to grind the nuts. Pulse the nuts until they are fine pieces, but do not over-process them to a powder.

Store cooled cookies at room temperature in an airtight container, or freeze them for up to three months. To freshen thawed cookies, roll them in additional cinnamon-sugar.
