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.
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.
