If you are looking for a light, buttery cookie to prepare for a party, to give as gifts or to have with an afternoon tea, look no further!
Though these cookies are light, they are definitely not lacking in flavor! From the richness of the nuts to the zest of the orange to the spice from the nutmeg. This recipe makes a whopping 65 cookies (wow!) so you will have plenty to serve or gift at that next gathering.
No matter how bad your day is, when you start talking about cookies or cakes or pies, or you bring someone cookies, there's just not bad news. The worst news is, 'Hey, there's sugar in that.' -Christina Tosi
The brazil nut has many health benefits as well! These nuts are an excellent source of dietary fiber, very high levels of magnesium, thiamin, phosphorus, vitamin E, manganese, zinc and are the most dietarily abundant source of selenium. The chunks of nuts in these cookies are not only flavorful and add a nice crunch, but pack a powerful little nutrient bite! These cookies work well with an all-purpose flour or can be made with an all-purpose gluten free flour as well!
