100_1728

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.
