Walnut Wedding Cookies


As delicate as a new bride … SAM

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar plus additional for topping
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup heavy cream

With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla, beating until blended. Add the flour, salt, and nuts. Add the cream. Form the dough into a roll 2 1/2 inches in diameter and wrap tightly in plastic. Chill several hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1/4-inch thick slices and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, or until delicately browned around the edges. Remove to wire racks to cool slightly. While still warm, speinkle with additional confectioners’ sugar.
Makes 3 dozen cookies.
