When I was a little girl one of my favorite teachers taught me this wonderful recipe.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
- 30 whole cloves
Cream butter, add sugar gradually cream until smooth. Blend in flour. Stir in nuts, water, and vanilla. Mix well.
Shape into small 1 inch balls, press down while pressing in 1 whole clove on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes. While still warm roll into confectioners' sugar. If desired roll again when cooled.
