Walnut White Chocolate Snowcaps Cookies

Pin It Now!

Here it is, almost a full week into spring and I have a fresh layer of half a FOOT of snow on top of my grill.


This is my  version of Southern treat called, Smoky Mountain Snowcaps.  Looking out on what I pray is the last snowfall of the season, I felt inspired.

These are a chewy almost shortbread texture cookie.  Savory and LOADED with Walnuts, Spicy and interestingly flavored with nutmeg and all made pretty (and hinting of snow) by a final dusting of powdered sugar.

A grown up cookie, for grown up tastes and delicious!
