This is another recipe from my mother. While we were visiting, my mother had one of her various meetings. This recipe was her contribution.
My mother said that this is her go-to cookie recipe when she is short on time and wants to serve something simple and yet spectacular.
These cookies have an added panache, as you can adapt the flavor with different spices. And, they are also kosher for Passover!
1 lbs nuts or seeds. My mother said that “peanuts are the best, but any combination will work.”
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
Optional: coriander and cardamom
Beat egg with sugar and spices. Add nuts. Shape into cookies, drop on parchment line pan.
Bake in 325*F oven until set.
Optional, sprinkle with icing sugar when done, but my mother thinks they are sweet enough.
To give as a gift, place gently into a glass mason jar. Cover and decorate with a nice ribbon or bow.
Fast, easy, sophisticated and yum!
