Hickory Nut Cookies
Shelling hickory nuts is a labor of love--they are one of the hardest nuts to crack. You may substitute pecans, which are members of the hickory family. These helix-shaped cookies are easy to form; if you prefer round cookies, drop the batter by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the baking sheet.
Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
