 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 1/2 c Confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 c Butter, unsalted
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1 pn Salt
  • Mixed nuts


Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter. Add the
vanilla extract and a tiny amount of water SLOWLY to form a heavy, thick
dough. (The amount of water varies by the amount of humidity in the air;

degrees for 30 minutes. (If you add too much water, the cookie will
flatten out with an obvious, single nut in the middle. But they still taste
