    FloridaNative's Note:

    From the, my friend Wendy made these cookies during our Operation Baking Gals 'baking day' -- these are one of my FAVORITE cookies, I can never eat just one. NOTE: There is a 1-hour 'rest' time for the dough to firm up once it is mixed. This is not included in the prep time.

      Toast nuts. Place nuts on a separate baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes (or until lightly brown and fragrant) in a 350 degree F oven. Cool.

      Beat in the vanilla extract.
    7. 7
      Add the remaining flour and salt and beat until combined.

      Stir in the nuts.
    9. 9
      Cover and refrigerate the dough for about 1 hour or until firm.
    10. 10
      Once the dough is firm, form the dough into 1 inch (2.54 cm) balls and place 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheets.

      Bake about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start to brown.
