It’s true that,  when thinking about nostalgic food , childhood sweets are the ones we remember and cherish the most. These walnut cookies are one of those and for some reason, they were also the ones I’d never imagine making myself, they seemed so perfect and so hard to make. But , no , there nothing difficult, in fact these are even easier than many other kinds of homemade cookies. All you need is the walnut shaped mould, a few simple ingredients and good to go.

I think, I can even call these walnut cookies “no bake”, since we make them on the stovetop, using the mould. The filling for the cookies and be various: some like it with sweetened condensed milk, caramel condensed milk, or caramel buttercream, my personal favorite .

  1. OMG, walnut cookies are the best! Can you please let me know where can I get the mold to make walnut cookies?

  2. Dear Hehhineh,
    First of all my compliments for the amazing stuff you make!!
    I do have a question though. How should we cook that thing. Open the can and cook it or closed? And should the water boil or only on low heat?
