Holly Williams | Cinnamon & Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies
HOLLY WILLIAMS is a singer / songwriter who lives with her artist / musician husband Chris Coleman and their 2 daughters and son in Nashville, Tennessee. She has released three critically-acclaimed albums, and also owns two of Nashville’s best retail spots: H. Audrey and White’s Mercantile. Both stores show off her “exquisite taste”, as described by gal-pal and shopper Gwyneth Paltrow. One, H.Audrey, is arguably Nashville’s most beloved women’s clothing boutique, and the other, White’s Mercantile, is a completely curated shop stocked with Holly’s favorite items that she’s found while spending much of her life on the highway playing music to adoring fans. She describes White’s as a “general store for the modern-day tastemaker”. She may be from a famous family–country legend Hank Williams Jr. is her father–but don’t expect rhinestones and cowboy hats. Holly’s style embodies a modern-day chic simplicity fitted for shoppers around the globe.

Cinnamon & Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

holly williams recipes

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything! It’s been a crazy few months getting ready for album release on February 5th, and I’ve had little time for blogging. I played a few new songs for the super cool 78 Project, did a taping for CMT Edge, performed at the James Beard Foundation Awards (for the foodie-obsesssed), and sang at a brilliant farm to table dinner sponsored by Second Harvest Food Bank and Will Witherspoon (who happens to own this amazing farm). Last week was 3 days in NYC with stops at Sirius Radio , a speaking panel for Billboard magazine, and a meeting at Vogue (where everyone in the office is so chic I could die). And finally, a show last Saturday at the lovely Sea Island in Georgia.

I enjoyed a much needed afternoon off yesterday and wanted to get straight in the kitchen. When on tour, if I find a Doubletree hotel it seriously brings me the comfort of home with their cookies-upon-instant-arrival. I’ve been known to get them on the way in, on the way out, and every moment in between when I happen to be perusing the lobby (more cookies!). The cinnamon and crushed walnuts take these to a whole other stratosphere. They’re the ultimate chocolate chip cookie! Oh yes, H. Audrey is celebrating 5 years of business where I will be serving plenty of these!

Happy baking…

holly williams recipes



1/2 cup rolled oats

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cups brown sugar, packed

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp lemon juice

2 eggs

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts



. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grind oats in a foor processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Cream togethers the butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice in another bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth.

. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough, mix by hand until ingredients are well incorporated. Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. You don’t need to press the dough flat.

. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes (or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle). Store in a sealed container once cooled to keep soft. For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking. Makes roughly 25 cookies.

. I know the 1/4 cup portion sounds like a lot but they will even out!!
