1 ½ cups finely chopped/ground nut (hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, etc.)
1 cup sifted flour
2 tablespoons sugar
½ cup soft butter
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Prep Day: Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients except confectioner’s sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate dough for at least one-half hour. Form Dough into 1 inch balls, place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 15-20 min, until set but not brown. Cool partially on cooling rack and roll in confectioner’s sugar while warm. Re-roll in sugar just before serving.
Note: I baked my cookies before freezing them. Also, I used walnuts in half the cookies and pecans in the other half.
Serve Day: Thaw. Re-roll in confectioner’s sugar just before serving.
