- 1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
- ¼ cup Sugar
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 cup Walnuts, chopped
- ½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 Pinch Baking Powder
- 1 Pinch Salt
- Confectioners Sugar for coating
Preheat oven to 325°F
Cream butter with vanilla, then beat in sugar, flour, salt and baking powder until blended. Stir in the nuts. Refrigerate for a half hour, the dough will then be easier to handle.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until light brown. Cool slightly and then gently roll in confectioners sugar until coated. Set aside to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
