Thyme Walnut Cookies

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 tsp black pepper
 1 tsp kosher salt
 2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
 1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
 1 cup grated pecorino cheese
  cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 2 large eggs, beaten
 1 beaten egg for wash
 Coarse sea salt
 3 tbsp cold water

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, pepper, salt, thyme, walnuts and Pecorino cheese.


Stir in Colavita Olive oil and eggs and mix well. If dough seems crumbly, add a tablespoon of cold water and mix again.


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough for a minute or two, until smooth.


Divide in half and roll each half into a cylinder that is 2 inches in diameter.


Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours, or overnight.


Heat oven to 350°F. Using a sharp knife, slice 1/8-inch-thick rounds from each cylinder.


Use a spatula to transfer cookies to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush each cookie lightly with egg wash and sprinkle with sea salt.


Bake in batches for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a rack. Store in an airtight container.
