Faq

  • Why is my dough too sticky?

    This can happen if you haven't added enough flour. Gradually add a bit more flour until the dough reaches the right consistency.

  • Can I use a food processor to chop the walnuts?

    Yes, a food processor can make this step quicker, but be careful not to over-process. You want small pieces, not walnut powder.

  • How can I prevent my cookies from spreading too much?

    Chill the dough balls in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before baking. This helps maintain their shape.

  • Can I add other nuts or ingredients?

    Absolutely! Feel free to mix in other nuts like pecans or even chocolate chips to enhance the flavor.

  • How long do these cookies stay fresh?

    Stored in an airtight container, these cookies stay fresh for up to a week. But let's be honest, they'll be gone way before that! 😉

  • Can I freeze the dough?

    Yes, you can freeze the dough balls before baking. Just bring them to room temperature for about 10 minutes before baking.
