PREHEAT oven to 300°F.

MIX together flour, walnuts, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Add vanilla extract. Add butter in little pieces and combine everything together with clean hands until the mixture looks like a coarse meal with nut bits in it.

FORM the dough into small balls no larger than a walnut and place on the cookie sheet, spaced at least an inch apart from each other.

I love Swanson; I bake for extra money and I love it. I really have never used any other brand of cake flower except Swans Down; this is what my awesome baking mama used. Never had an error, yet; Swans Down never failed me.thanks for sharing your recipes as I haven’t tried any yet. If you come across the old lemon cheese cake icing for the 50’s please let me know at
