Spice Nut Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Michelle Berteig

From a free Penzey's recipe card. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it sounds good! Note that the cookie dough (formed into a log) needs to rest in the refrigerator overnight.

Made these, along with another cookie recipe, with my other half sharing some with co-workers one day & my son & DIL confiscating a few for themselves when they were here! Used toasted pecans this time around & they turned out very well, I thought! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while in Germany with ZWT6]
