Published by Amy
I’ve mentioned Granny’s little book of recipes before; filled to the brim with all her classic recipes – from shortbread, to pancakes, it houses all Granny’s biggest crowd pleasers. Walnut Biscuits are no exception. Lovely little biscuits with a nice wee bit of history behind them.
Granny first started making Walnut Biscuits as a teenager when she worked in a local coffee shop – her first full time job, circa 1976. They were always a favourite with the cafe-goers, particularly with a cuppa. Sweet, buttery and melt-in-the-mouth – it’s really is no wonder they were such a crowd pleaser.
As well as being truly scrumptious, Granny’s Walnut Biscuits are also incredibly easy to make. They’re the perfect recipe to bake with kids and they’re also very versatile and lend themselves to all different kinds of nuts. Walnuts happen to be my favourite nut but why not give them a try with pecans, peanuts or even pistachios?
• Don’t over-chop your walnuts – you want them to give a bit of bite to your biscuits.
What is your favourite nut or which are your favourite nuts
thank you …our book circle loved them
I thought they were going to be dry but no, just right!
Everyone loves them! I can’t make batches fast enough! Luckily I have 2 huge black walnut trees which often give me large quantities of nuts.
Made these today with my mum. I made them gluten free with gluten free self-raising flour & left out the cornflour. I had 2 biscuits to eat tonight because they were that good. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
Yum – made these for my girlfriend, she loved them!
Simple recipe with good ingredients, easy to make absolutely scrumptious.
