Coffee and Walnut Cookies

Coffee and Walnut Cookies

I’m not kidding when I say these are just insanely delicious. Coffee and walnut has always been one of those perfect combinations and this is no exception.

They have that luxury cookie tastes and texture - with a slight firmness on the outside and a soft, chewy centre – they are quite honestly delicious. Don’t miss out the walnuts they give it just that perfect crunch – yum! :)

I love making nut butter cookies (and of course eating them) – peanut butter have been a favourite of mine for a while now but I love a bit of variety and peanut is a strong flavour,  not that I’m complaining personally I love it, but sometimes it’s fun to experiment and have a change.

I’ve more than likely mentioned it before (once or twice) but one of my favourite things about cashew nut butter is how easily it takes in other flavours – its makes it a great base for so many things.

So when I had the idea for a coffee and walnut cookies it immediately sprung to mind that it should be a Cashew Nut Butter Coffee and Walnut Cookie! I just asked my dad – the biggest coffee and walnut fan I know - what he thinks of these cookies…………….wait for it……wait for it (he’s eating it) wait for it – he says he really needs to try another one before he can give me an opinion.
