This week it seems every day is a tea party. This afternoon it is equipped with scones and mommy’s famous tea cookies. The recipe comes from my Aunt Nancy and it’s one of those recipes you kind of wish you never learned because its too easy to make and way to easy to finish off the batch. Your waist line will not be thanking you but I will let you worry about that later.
1 stick butter softened
3 tbs of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
1 cup of flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
Powder sugar to toss them in.
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla with a spoon. Stir in flour until it forms a ball and add walnuts until combined.
Form into small balls, a little smaller than a golf ball and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool a few minutes then roll through powder sugar. Makes about 12 cookies depending on size. They don’t expand when baking so you an fit about 2 dozen on a pan. We sprinkled ours with pink finishing sugar per my sons request. If you decide to try these please comment back and let me know what you think.
