DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 5 cookie sheets with parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and vanilla and coconut extracts.
  • Sift together the flour and the salt.
  • Slowly add to the butter mixture.
  • Add nuts. Mix until blended well.
  • Roll into small, bite sized balls. (about 3/4 of an ounce or 2 tablespoons). I like to use a small #40 portion disher (small, 3/4 ounce sized, ice cream scoop) and place 1-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until slightly golden.
  • While still warm, (not hot, not cold) roll through powdered sugar.
  • Keeps about a week (but they won't be around that long) in an air-tight container.
