Walnut Melts Cookies

Here's another easy and quick cookie recipe that I want to share with you all. I got this recipe from Razzle Dazzle few years ago and it has become one of my favorite cookies to make since then. In fact I bake this often since hb and I find it a perfect pair with our afternoon green tea or black English tea. The recipe calls for 4 oz. of butter and 4 oz. of margarine, but I just used 2 sticks of unsalted butter and the cookies turned out great too.


2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup confectioner sugar

2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped finely (I run the walnuts in a chopper)
1/2 cup confectioner sugar (to toss the warm cookies with once baked)

1. Heat the oven to 350 deg. F. Cover cookie sheets with baking parchment and set aside.

2. Blend the butter with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer at the slowest speed. Add the vanilla and 1/2 cup of the confectioners sugar, beating until combined.

3. Mix the flour and salt. Gradually add the flour to the creamed mixture and beat it until a soft dough forms. Add the walnuts and stir until incorporated.

4. With your hands, form the dough into 1-inch balls and place them two inches apart on parchment-lined pans.

5. Press each ball slightly in the center. They will flatten as they bake.
6. Bake until cookies are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Toss the warm cookies in the other 1/2 confectioners sugar.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
