International Christmas Cookie Party - Week 3

I'm joining Johanna for her International Christmas Cookie Party over at Silber & Rosen

Walnut Spice Kisses
1 egg white only (no yolk)
1 dash salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
1/8 teaspoon cloves (ground)
1 cup very finely chopped walnuts
walnut halves for the top of each cookie

I usually grind my own spices so I use a tad less of each, prepared ground spices works just as well. I also triple or quadruple the recipe because they go so fast.

Beat egg white with salt until stiff but not dry. Mix sugar with spices; gradually beat into egg white. Fold in the finely chopped walnuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto well greased baking sheets. Top each with a walnut half. Bake at 250°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until crisp and dry. Remove to wire rack to cool. Store in tightly covered container so they stay crisp and dry!

See you again next week with more cookies!


  1. Hi Candy,
    thank you so much for joining my party. Because I love walnuts, I planted some years ago a little tree in my garden. This year we harvested enough walnuts for cookies. So I am happy with this delicious recipe. Thank you so much for sharing.
    Greetings, Johanna
