- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups sifted all purpose flour
- 1 cup ground almonds or walnuts
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar together. Add flour, ground nuts, and vanilla and mix well.
Form into small balls and place on greased* cookie sheet. Bake at 325° for 35 minutes.
Roll in powdered sugar to coat while still hot. Cool completely on rack and store in airtight container. Best when made a week or two ahead.
*I use an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet and bake until the bottoms are golden brown.
