Passover Nut Cookies

no one will be able to resist these great Passover cookies!


3/4 cup coarsely ground almonds
3 cups coarsely ground walnuts & pecans (combined)
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp honey plus the zest from one small orange
3/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with a “Silpat” or parchment paper. Mix together the nuts, eggs, sugar, honey and cinnamon. Mix until moist and workable. If needed add a little more honey for moisture. The mixture will be sticky so wet your hands before shaping the mixture into balls about 1″ and place on the baking sheet, flatten with a fork. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until very lightly browned for chewy cookies. Let them cool on sheet and then remove with a spatula. Makes about 36 pieces. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Can be frozen in airtight container
