BLACK WALNUT COOKIES – The Southern Lady Cooks

Black Walnut Cookies - The Southern Lady Cooks

These Black Walnut Cookies are super easy to make and have a great taste. If you like black walnuts you will love these cookies. Leigh and I worked at Baskin Robbins when we were in high school and we always loved the black walnut ice cream. So these cookies were a big hit!

Black Walnut Cookies Ingredients Needed:


White Granulated Sugar

Brown Sugar (light or dark)


Vanilla Flavoring

All Purpose Flour

Baking Soda

Cream Cheese Flavored Chips

Black Walnuts

We made these cookies with Hershey’s Cream Cheese Chips (like chocolate chips, but are cream cheese flavored) and they were a wonderful addition. We bought them at Kroger and they really are delicious. If you can’t find the chips, you can always just buy a can of cream cheese frosting and frost these cookies too.

Black Walnuts have a very unique taste and are definitely stronger than regular walnuts. We thought these cookies were better the next day so you can easily make them in advance!

You may also love these Cinnamon and Pecan Cookies! They are very popular.

Makes 24-36 cookies depending on the size that you make them. The serving size is set on how many cookies each person would eat. I set it at 4 cookies. I made these cookies a little bigger and they were perfect at 15 minutes.
