While browsing through this Garden City (KS) Cookbook one day before the holidays, I found a new (to me) cookie recipe with two of my favorite ingredients ~ walnuts and coconut. I thought it would be fun to share it with you today.
Honey Walnut Drops Recipe
1 c. sugar
1 c. honey
2/3 c. shortening
3 ¾ c. flour
1 tsp. Salt
Drop teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Top each cookie with walnut half and coconut.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
*Yield not given in this recipe, but I got about 6 dozen cookies from my batch.
PS: I did not have any extra walnuts, so did not top the cookies with a one-half walnut. Lots of walnuts IN the cookies, though.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This cookie recipe was published in this Garden City cookbook in 1979, so no nutritional information is included of the kind you often find in today's recipes (such as calories, fat grams, carbs, etc.), in case you were wondering. :-). Considering the ingredients, I am sure there are a 'number' of calories in it, but, after all, it is a cookie!
Old Joke: Did you know that if you break a cookie in half before eating, all the calories 'fall out'? LOL.
