Kiss Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by nancyal

these are delicious. i do not use the walnuts as we are allergic to them, but i do dust them with confectioners sugar as it makes them look prettier. i have had this recipe for over 20 years so i do not remember where i got it. prep time includes 1 hour chill time.

I used to make these with my grandma when I was a kid. We would chop those walnuts until they were almost powder. We rolled them in the powdered sugar as soon as they were cool enough to touch. I can't wait to make these with my kids.
