Walnut Icebox Cookies


This is my recipe is from my paternal grandparents and was always called "Mother and Dad Horman's Ice Box Cookies" in our family. No, I didn't just mispell my last name.

  • In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon together until evenly blended; set aside. Beat the margarine, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the margarine mixture before adding the next. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chopped nuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  • Scrape the dough onto a sheet of waxed paper, and form into a log. Roll tightly in the waxed paper, and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours.
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
  • Unwrap the dough, and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place the cookies onto baking sheets, spaced 1-inch apart. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Long before refrigerators we had ice boxes and ice box cookies were today's break and bake cookies, early ancestor. Make these at least 2 days ahead of time. Use only BLACK WALNUTS. This is what my husband refers to as a dunkin cookie. You can soften them up by placing a slice of bread in the container with them. The first time...

  • 2 c firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 c butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 c all purpose flour

My friend, Carolyn, brought these cookies into the quilt shop where I work and I begged her for the recipe. This is a delicious, fast refrigerator cookie that has just the right amount of sweetness. I made a batch at my first opportunity and my hubby loved them as much as I did, especially with a hot cup of coffee. The rolls of dough would be great to put in the freezer too, so you could have these little gems whenever you want too.

  • 1. Cream together the Butter, Oil and Sugars in a very large bowl 2. Beat in the Eggs 3. Stir in the Baking Soda, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves and Salt 5. Add the Flour 1 Cup at a time, and stir well 6. Add the Hot Water to moisten the batter just a bit 7. Now stir in the Walnuts 8. Roll and shape dough into desired length (I usually go with 2 1/2 inches wide by 12 inch long rolls, you should get about 4 rolls) then wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. You can keep the dough in the refrigerator for several days if you want to make the dough ahead of time. 9. When ready to bake, Preheat oven to 375 degrees, slice the dough into 1/2 inch slices, then place on an nongreased cookie sheet 10. Bake the cookies until the edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes 11. Cool on brown paper (I use a cookie cooling rack) ~makes about 80 cookies Note: any unused dough or cookie slices should be kept in the refrigerator until they go directly in the oven. The cold dough is easier to slice and helps the cookie retain it's shape. For you you youngsters out there, "Icebox" is an old term referring to an old style refrigerator of sorts. Before homes had electricity they would have an Icebox, usually made of wood that had blocks of ice in it, to keep food items cold. Once the refrigerator was developed, some people still called their refrigerator "the Ice box". So the recipe name "Old Fashioned Ice Box Cookies" refers to the fact that you refrigerate the cookie dough before baking and since this is a very old recipe, they still referred to the fridge as an Ice Box.
