{Walnut Butter Balls}

Let me introduce to you walnut butter balls, you'll like each other, I made these little beauties between pancakes for breakfast and swedish meatballs for dinner, they were lunch, it was a good day for tummies around here.  

These fall into the catagory of biscuit I like to call irresistible, you can't stop thinking about them, no one can stop eating them, they demand to be eaten, they are rich and lovely sort of like a walnut shortbread, go on, make em they are dead easy.

...the cookies
2 cups ground walnuts
2 cups plain flour
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
icing sugar to roll them in

Preheat oven to 180.  I used a blender to whizz up my walnuts but you do it your way just make 2 cups worth, then add the rest of the ingredients except for the icing sugar.  

Roll them into walnut sized balls and pop them onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.  Bake for 12 - 15 minutes till they start to colour.  

Remove from the oven, transfer to a rack and cool just enough that they firm up a bit and you can handle them, so they are still quite warm but not burning your fingers, roll them in icing sugar (I put the icing sugar in a glad bag and gently tossed them in there 3 or 4 at a time).  Put back on the rack to cool completely the try not to eat them all at once.


  1. YUM! I love this sort of biscuit and agree on the addiction factor. Would be gorgeous with pistachios, eh? But imagine shelling them all...

  2. the shelling time could be worth it for the pretty colour ....

  3. wow. you have so many lovely foods here. these remind me of a coconut ball rolled in powered icing sugar. now i'm craving them. :)


  4. ohh i've made these about three times since they graced presence in my home! My family were pretty impressed and i did not slip just how easy they are! Let em think i slaved away i say! ;-)
