Quick to make these little bite-sized cookies will be a great addition to a cookie tray during the holidays. These freeze very well and can be placed on a cookie sheet and baked while still frozen.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Blend in butter and vanilla. Add nuts. Shape into 1/2-inch balls.
  2. Dust tops with confectioners'sugar.
  3. Place on a greased baking sheet 1-1/2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 15-20 minutes.
  5. Cool on racks and dust with more confectioners' sugar while still warm.

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes, and this recipe did not disappoint me at all. I would probably add a little more sugar though the next time I make these, for a slightly sweeter cookie. But this is just a personal preference. The cookies are actually perfectly delicious just as written in the posted recipe. Thanks, Aroostook. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
