A tasty little cookie with a history as a special occasion cookie in many countries!
- 1.5 cups vegan butter, softened (I use Earth Balance)
- ¾ cup confectioner’s sugar (vegan brand)
- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups walnuts
- 1 cup pecans
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp almond extract
- ¼ tsp salt (unless butter is salted)
Preheat oven to 350*
Using a blender or food processor finely chop the nuts. Really. FINELY.
Use a mixer to combine all ingredients.
Roll into small balls. It will make between 45-50 cookies.
Cook for 12-18 minutes depending on size. The size shown here took the maximum time. If you make just a little larger than the diameter of a nickel, they will take about the minimum time. Remove from oven when you see them start to brown around the bottom.
Allow to cool completely and then roll in powdered sugar.
