  • When just blended, mix in the walnuts.
  • Cover and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes before rolling.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degres.
  • Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  • To form the cookies, scoop out a portion of dough and roll out on a well-floured surface.
  • When dough is 1/4 inch thick, cut it into rounds or other desired shapes.
  • Re-roll scraps and cut again.
  • Place on cookie sheet (leave room for expansion) and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Watch for any hot spots in the oven and don’t let these cookies overbrown.
  • VARIATION: For the Brownie Cookie Crust, make 1 recipe of Brownie Cookies and chill the dough briefly.
  • Lightly grease the back side of a large baking sheet.
  • Roll the dough out onto the baking sheet as thinly as possible so that the baked product will crumble easily.
  • Bake crust at 375 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Let crust harden, then slide the cookie from the sheet and cool completely.
  • Roll over the cookie with a rolling pin until it is crushed to a fine crumb. (There should be about 2 1/4 cups of crumbs.) Melt 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter.
  • Mix it into the crumbs and pack the mixture over the bottom and up the sides of a 10-inch springform pan.
  • Freeze for 30 minutes before filling in order to set the crust.
  • Line each cup with waxed paper for easy removal.
