Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and vanilla, until creamy.
  2. Add the flour and, with a pastry blender or 2 knives, combine the mixture until crumbly. Stir in the walnuts.

  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until well blended, about 1 minute.

Chef Tips

Eat all sweet, sugary treats in moderation. A little bit of sweetness can make you feel good, but don’t overdo it! High calorie desserts are best as a treat, never a habit. A serving here counts as two cookies.
