Another very versatile nut cookie. These make great logs, dipped in chocolate, and they also make great thumbprints.  We usually fill these with the leftover apricot or fig filling. In 2017, we made them with red walnuts. Yum!…

  • 2 1/2 cubes butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup ground walnuts

Cream butter and sugar.  Add vanilla.  Add flour and then the walnuts.  Chill dough.

Shape dough into 1/4 to 1/2″ cylinders.  Cut into 2-3 inch lengths.  Bake at 375° for about 10 minutes, or until they start to turn brown..  Cool completely, then dip one end in melted chocolate.
