1 cup cold butter (cut into cubes)
2 cups four (we like to use unbleached white whole wheat)
6 TBS Powdered Sugar
1 TSP vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
Powdered sugar for rolling or dusting baked cookies
Combine butter, flour, vanilla and sugar in a bowl and mix with fingers until it is a course pea texture. Add walnuts and toss lightly.
Form into balls and bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 30+ minutes in a 300 degree oven or until the bottoms are just golden.
Roll in powdered sugar (they might need a second roll if the sugar melts too much) straight out of the oven and allow to cool.
