A Good Cookie

20 Jan

Moving away from decorated cakes for now, I finally had a chance to make one of my favorite cookies. I wish I had a picture of them to post but take my word for it you can’t stop with just one and they will melt in your mouth. They are a lot like shortbread cookies but rolled in powdered sugar and with nuts. If you don’t have this recipe, try it I’m sure you’ll like it.

OLD FASHIONED WALNUT BALLS

1 cup butter (soft)

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups plain flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups finely chopped walnuts

     Powdered sugar to roll cookies in.

    Cream butter and  brown sugar together. Add vanilla and stir.  Sift flour and salt together, add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chopped nuts. Shape into walnut sized balls  and bake on ungreased cookie sheet 12 to 15 min. at 375.  Roll in powdered sugar. Roll again in sugar when cool. Makes about 4 doz.
