This cookie is a must during the Holidays. Simple to make. You can vary the recipe by replacing walnuts with cashews, pecan or some time I mix in chocolate chip or butterscotch chips.
- Cream butter,sugar, salt and vanilla.
- Blend in flour and nuts.
- Scoop and roll into balls.
- Bake 325 for 22 to 25 minutes.
- Remove from oven roll into powdered sugar.
bleh. These were so disappointing. Bland. Dry. Crumbly. Like eating packing peanuts. Couldn't even bring myself to give them away.
I too have been making these forever! just a tip on the butter use 1/2 cup salted and 1/2 unsalted and that will help with the taste and crumbling. ;)
I've been making these cookies since I was 13...I'm now 43 and love them just the same....I used to have the recipe commited to memory but 5 kids later I need to refer to the recipe :) Such a basic recipe , but ohhhh so good! Try 'em!
