FLAX & WALNUT COOKIES:
1 C butter 3 oz. cream cheese
2 eggs 1 C brown sugar
1 t vanilla 1 t baking soda
1/2 C ground walnuts 1/2 C flax seeds (ground)
2 1/2 C flour
Cream butter and cream cheese, add brown sugar and eggs, mix till fluffy, add vanilla and soda. Put walnuts in coffee grinder – grind up 1/2 C add to mix. Measure 1/2 C flax seeds, put in grinder and add to mix (so, measure nuts after ground and flax seed before grind). Add flour. Roll into balls and put a nut in center of each, bake 350 for 10 – 12 minutes. Makes 4 doz.
I actually made this one up too. My husband wanted me to make a “healthy” walnut cookie. I know baking is really a science, it is easy to make mistakes and I have – but these turned out great!
I hope you give them a try – not sure how “healthy” they are, but they are tasty.
