Italian Wedding Cookies on a Green Plate

4. Italian Wedding Cookies

These snowball cookies will easily take your Christmas cookie platter up a notch.

The dough is a type of shortbread made with ground almonds (or pecans), butter, powdered sugar, and flour.

You’ll roll it into balls and bake until barely golden. Then roll them in powdered sugar for that signature snowball look.

If you want to make an impression this season, these are the cookies you need!

5. Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

Thick, chewy cookies loaded with melty chocolate and nuts? Count me in!

The crisp crust envelops the soft, gooey interior perfectly. And the walnuts are deliciously buttery – not to mention good for you!

6. Coconut Cookies With Mixed Nuts

Craving something sweet but want to skip the chocolate? These coconut cookies with mixed nuts are just the ticket!

They’re rich and buttery, with the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

And since they’re studded with mixed nuts, you get plenty of satisfying crunch in every bite.

Adding desiccated coconut to the dough makes them super chewy too.

The best part? They have less sugar than regular cookies – so go ahead and have two.

7. Italian Pistachio Cookies

These Italian cookies with pistachios are so good, you won’t want to share!

You’ll add finely chopped pistachios to the dough, giving them yummy flavor and a lovely green hue.

They’re sweet, mildly nutty, and so buttery, they melt in your mouth.

8. Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Try these tasty oatmeal and walnut cookies the next time you want something healthy(ish).

The cookie dough is packed with rolled oats and walnuts. And after a spin in the oven, they’re crispy and chewy.

Serve them with a big glass of milk for the ultimate breakfast treat. Or pair them with your afternoon cup of tea.

9. 3-Ingredient Nutty Banana Cookies

This nutty banana cookie recipe is a three-ingredient wonder that’ll make your day better.

All you need is mashed banana, almond butter, and nuts. Mix everything until combined them bake until puffy and perfect.

The result? A chewy, gooey treat that’s naturally sweet from the bananas and delightfully nutty.

Add chocolate chips and cinnamon for even more flavor. Or go for gold with a drizzle of salted caramel. Yum!

Coffee cookies with chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, and coffee glaze

10. Coffee Cookies

As a coffee and chocolate lover, these coffee cookies are dangerous. I seriously can’t stop at just one (or two…or three!).

Like any good chocolate chip cookie, they use a blend of white and brown sugars to ensure they’re sweet and chewy.

But you’ll also add instant coffee or espresso granules for a nice layer of coffee goodness in each bite.

Finish them with some buttery chopped pecans and a heavenly coffee glaze, and I think you’ll be hooked too!

11. Peanut Brownie Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven. But peanut-brownie cookies? That’s a recipe for success!

These brownie cookies are fudgy, chewy, and incredibly sweet. And when you toss in some peanut butter and nuts, you’re in for a real treat.

Once you bite into these chocolatey and nutty cookies, you’ll want to devour the whole batch!

Soft and Crispy Rugelach Cookies

12. Rugelach Cookies

Easily one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes, these rugelach cookies are tender, crisp, and wonderfully spiced.

They can be made with all kinds of sweet fillings, including Nutella, chocolate chips, and even fruity jams.

But this recipe, with cinnamon, walnuts, and raisins, is the best of the bunch.

They’re sweet and chewy with a tasty nutty kick. And they’re easier to make than they look!

13. Toffee Cashew Cookies

These toffee cashew cookies are sweet, salty, butty, and sticky. Every bite is better than the last, and they’re every bit as tasty as they look.

I think cashews are the perfect pairing for toffee. But pecans would work well too.

The best part? This recipe is a breeze, and it only takes 20 minutes!

14. Dark Chocolate Chunk, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies

Dark, rich, and salty-sweet with the perfect amount of crunch, this is my top choice for nutty cookies.

With the fantastic blend of rich chocolate, sea salt, and crunchy green pistachios, they’re like a gift from the heavens.

Go ahead and make double – you’ll need as many of these as you can get!

15. German Hazelnut Cookies

Have you ever tried German cookies with hazelnuts? If not, you’re missing out!

They’re buttery, nutty, and delightfully sweet with a hint of vanilla.

Meanwhile, the hazelnuts add a light, earthy flavor that enhances these delicately-flavored cookies beautifully.

They only require a handful of ingredients and are a breeze to make. They just need 10 minutes of prep before you pop them in the oven.

16. Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

These double chocolate hazelnut cookies are a dream come true for chocolate lovers.

They earn a double dose of chocolate from cocoa powder and chocolate chips. And with the addition of hazelnut, they almost taste like Nutella cookies.

Serve these at your next holiday party, and they’ll disappear fast!

Chewy and Gooey Refrigerator Cookies

17. Refrigerator Cookies

I know these cookies look pretty basic. But looks can be deceiving, right?

They’re like the best spiced snickerdoodle you’ve ever tried – sweet, chewy, and full of cinnamony goodness.

But they’re also brimming with chopped walnuts for a tasty boost of nutty flavor that takes them over the edge.

I like to throw in white chocolate or butterscotch chips, but that’s optional. They’re fabulous either way.
