Mom's Walnut Bars

Rated as 1.8 out of 5 Stars

"These are sinfully delicious walnut cookies made with no flour! They can be made at Christmas with little poinsettia's on the top or on Halloween with R.I.P. written on top (we call them 'coffin cookies' when they are made like that). I hope you like them as much as we do! Note: Mom uses lemon, but I like orange better."

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (100 degrees C).
  2. Combine the white sugar, ground walnuts, orange zest, orange juice and 2 egg whites. This mixture will become very sticky and paste-like.
  3. Form the paste into a long rectangle on a smooth surface sprinkled with sugar so that it won't stick. The rectangle should be about 16 x 4 inches.
  4. Make the frosting by mixing the remaining egg white with the confectioners' sugar. You don't need to beat the egg white first! You may need to add a little water, or a little more powdered sugar to form a paste that you can easily spread, but that isn't runny.
  5. Spread the frosting over your rectangle. Use a knife covered with sugar to cut the rectangle into small 1 x 2 inch bars and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 35 minutes or until frosting is hard but still white. Enjoy with a big glass of milk!

The dough was so gooey that there was no way I was going to be able to roll it out, even after adding quite a bit of spelt flower. Instead, I formed it into balls and flattened them on the cooki...

This recipe is missing A LOT of information. First of all - it's impossible to move the bars from the cutting surface to the cookie sheet while still maintaining some form, the quantities make ...

I followed the recipe and ignored the ratings. Taste was ok, consisitency was awful. Sticky and falling apart.

Should have read the reviews first. All are very correct.

The taste its very good but I do think we are missing something, it definitely didn't look like a bar.
