DIRECTIONS

  • Combine 1 1/4 cups of the walnuts, the flour, baking powder, and salt in a food processor.
  • Pulse the machine repeatedly until the nuts are chopped into very fine pieces.
  • Set aside.
  • Finely chop the remaining nuts by hand and set them aside in a small bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth, gradually adding the sugar. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla and coffee.
  • Add the dry mixture to the creamed ingredients, stirring the dough with a wooden spoon until evenly combined.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Adjust one oven rack so it is in the center position.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Get out 1 or 2 large baking sheets and butter them lightly or line with parchment.
  • Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls 1 1/4-inches in diameter.
  • Roll in the finely chopped nuts and place on the cookie sheet/s, leaving a little room between them.
  • Bake -- one sheet at a time -- for 16 to 18 minutes, until firm to the touch.
  • Cool briefly on the sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.
