These cookies are tender and buttery with a mouthful of walnut flavor in every bite. The only take about 20 minutes to make and go perfectly with a hot glass of your favorite tea.
- 1 Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
- 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Ground Walnuts
- 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
- Powdered Sugar For Topping
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. F. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the vanilla and walnuts. Add the 2 cups of flour and combine.
Refrigerate dough for 1 to 2 hours. Break off 1 tablespoon sized pieces and shape into ball. Place on a baking sheet, and bake for about 13-15 minutes, or until the cookies are set, and have just begun to take on color. Cool completely, and then roll into the powdered sugar until well coated. Store in airtight containers.
