During F&W Cookie Week, some of our favorite digital contributors are sharing their best holiday cookie recipes in a virtual swap. Post your favorite baking experiments on Instagram using #FWCookie. Here, a sweet and nutty recipe from Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites.
I hope I'm not committing heresy when I say that I like my cookies on the easy-simple side. While I appreciate stacks of dipped and rolled and filled bites, it's the simple things I keep coming back to. Using dried tart cherries in this recipe gives it contrast, and the nuts make it feel all holiday-y.
