  • 2-3 Tbsp. – white granulated sugar

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.

WHILE still warm, but cool enough to touch, roll the cookies in powdered sugar. Set on wire rack to cool completely. Once cool dust again with powdered sugar.

    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
