Walnut Cookies

  • 1 C. butter
  • 3 C. flour
  • 1/3 C. frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 1/2 C. water
  • 1 t. cinnamon 4 oz. honey
  • 2 t. baking powder ground walnuts
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
Preparation Method: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients in order given, adding enough sifted flour to make a medium dough that does not stick to hands. Knead slightly. Pinch off pieces of dough the size of a large walnut and form into flat oval shapes with tapered ends. Bake for 25 minutes. While the cookies are baking, make a syrup by boiling together the sugar, water, and honey. Boil to make a medium syrup, about 5 minutes. When the cookies are cool, dip them quickly into the warm syrup and sprinkle with ground walnuts mixed with cinnamon.
