Walnut Rounds


With a Taste Reminiscent of Rich Shortbread

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 egg yolk, from a large egg
1/4 TSP. salt
1 TSP. vanilla
2-1/2 cups sifted flour
1-1/4 cups finely chopped walnuts

DIRECTIONS:

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and vanilla until thoroughly blended and fluffy. With a wooden spoon, gradually mix in the flour, then the nuts. Chill for 1/2 an hour or so.

On a floured pastry cloth, with a floured stockinette-covered rolling pin, roll out 1/4 of the dough at a time so that it is about 1/4″ thick.

Keep remaining dough refrigerated. Cut out with a 2″ round cookie cutter. Place about 1″ apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in a pre-heated 350° oven until lightly browned – about 10 minutes. While still warm, roll in extra confectioners’ sugar. Cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container between sheets of wax paper. Makes about 5 dozen.
