This Christmas season I’ve thoroughly enjoyed baking heap loads of cookies. These Walnut & Sultana cookies are also part of that larger box of assorted homemade cookies.
Check below for other cookie recipes on the blog:
These cookies are very festive with sweetness from the sultanas and the walnuts giving it that nutty flavour.
These cookies are very simple and hassle-free to make. If you’re pressed for time amidst all the festive preparations, just spare 30 mins of your day and you’ll be able to bake these beauties in no extra time at all.
The recipe calls for walnuts and sultanas but these can be replaced by any dried fruits you’ve got at hand. You can use some dried cranberries, raisins, dried apricots, fried figs, cashew nuts, pecans, pine nuts, etc instead of walnuts and sultanas. So there shouldn’t be any reason not to bake these today.
Baking cookies with kids during the holidays is also a fun activity and this recipe being easy to follow can be a Christmas activity for y’all to do as a family.
So, go ahead and bake these walnut & sultana cookies today!!!
