Nevada is such a fascinating state to me. Over 85% of the state's 2.8 million residents live in Las Vegas and Reno. Not hard to believe when you learn that 86% of the state's land is owned by the US Federal Government.
Since most of Nevada is desert, I chose a cookie to mimic the texture of sand. This cookie is crumbly and sort of dry, but the flavor is fantastic and the nuts make them nice and crunchy.
If desired, sprinkle with more confectioner's sugar.
