  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350˚.
  • In a mixing bowl cream together the butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla.
  • Add the flour and nuts and mix thoroughly. This is a workout, get ready to mix!
  • Chill this mixture for about 1/2 an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Roll into 1" small balls with your hands and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • While still warm to the touch roll these each in the powdered sugar, add more as needed and store in a air tight container or serve immediately. I prefer the latter!
