Walnut Cinnamon Winter Cookies

We finally decorated our tree last night! We’ve had it in our living room for a week, and haven’t had the time to tend to it..we finally poured a glass of nog, cranked up the Christmas tunes, and decorated away. The look on my sons face was unreal..the lights had him in complete awe, and he was having so much fun. Every time we turned the lights on and off or showed him a new ornament he’d go “awwwww” *insert amazed voice*

Other than all the decorating, music, eggnog, and holiday spirit in general, one of the greatest parts of the holidays are all the sweet treats! They’re popping up everywhere and I want to make every single one of them! Good thing I’m pregnant, I really don’t feel all that guilty about it!

These Walnut Cinnamon Winter Cookies are wonderful! They’re like a soft, pillowy, cloud! The Cinnamon combined with the slight crunch of walnuts, and the soft chewy cookie, covered in a cloud of powdered sugar, made for an amazing cookie.

Don’t get these confused with snowballs, they aren’t crumbly, or balls. They are soft, cookie-esque and have incredible flavor & texture! Please add these to your holiday baking list, they lasted in my house for two days. (That’s without sharing..oops!) A perfect cookie for the season!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
