Passover Desserts 062

This little ball shaped cookie is a Sephardic classic.  Every Nona made these.  They are perfect for Passover or any other time of year.  If you like the taste of nuts and honey, you will love these. 

1 and 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely ground

1 and 1/2 cup blanched almonds, coarsely ground

1/ 2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1 tablespoon honey

1 egg

Preheat the oven to 400º.  Combine all the ingredients in one bowl and stir with a wooden spoon.  When the dough becomes all moist and sticky, it is ready.  Using your hands, form the sticky dough into walnut size balls or triangles, flatten a little bit.  Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake the mustachudos for about 7 minutes, or until done. Watch them carefully as they burn easily.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
