Cinnamon Walnut Snow Cookies

It’s finally getting cold in Texas! I can’t believe it. We even had some snow flurries dust our driveways! I am sure it will be back to 70 degree weather soon, so no need to panic. I personally do not do well in cold weather, so I hope this snow isn’t sticking around for long. In the meantime, the best way I know how to conquer the cold is to warm up in the kitchen! Recipe testing is always a fun way to pass the time when you are stuck indoors. So, this post features my latest experimentation, and current cookie obsession!

Yes, the holidays are over, but my love for cinnamon is still alive and kicking. It is such a fun flavor to experiment with all winter long, so I decided to include the flavor in these delicious Cinnamon Walnut Snow Cookies. These treats are incredibly soft, bursting with flavor, and the addition of walnuts give them a perfect crunch as well. Plus, rolling them in powdered sugar is the icing on the cake (well…cookie in this situation). ๐Ÿ™‚ I highly encourage you to try a batch of these during these cold winter days. Grab your ingredients, a cookie pan and lets get through this weather together!
