Walnut Cookie Sticks

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 3 DOZEN COOKIES
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1/2 cup walnuts (about 2 ounces)
  2. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  4. 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  5. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  7. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. In a food processor, pulse the walnuts with 2 tablespoons of the sugar until finely ground. Transfer to the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with a paddle. Add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Mix on low speed until combined. Add the butter and mix until a coarse meal forms. Add the egg and maple syrup and mix until combined.
  2. Divide the dough in half. Roll out each piece to a 7-inch log, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Wrap each piece in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°. Slice each log 1/3 inch thick. Using your hands, roll each slice out to an 8-inch stick and arrange them about 1 inch apart on 2 nonstick baking sheets. Twist and turn one end of each cookie to make a little squiggle. Bake the cookies for about 18 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Let cool on the baking sheet before serving.
