Tips & variations

  • Dough Handling: If the dough is too sticky, chill it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to make it easier to handle.

  • Walnut Size: Finely chop the walnuts for even distribution throughout the cookies.

  • Molasses Quality: Use a high-quality molasses for the best flavor. Different types of molasses can vary in sweetness and intensity.

  • Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh. They can also be frozen for longer storage.

  • Serving Suggestion: These cookies pair wonderfully with tea or coffee, making them a great choice for a morning or afternoon treat.
