Six Dalahäster were getting tired of eating rosemary…
Hattie had a suggestion, and handed Amelia an apron…
The recipe calls for a lot of powdered sugar, so Hattie set about pounding some.
Amelia went for the more modern equipment.
Both girls rolled tiny balls of dough…
and popped them into the oven!
When the cookies are baked, they are rolled in powdered sugar – once while hot, and a second time when cool.
These are extremely addictive cookies and it is a good plan to hide them if you want them to last until Christmas!
Hattie did the washing-up…
…and Amelia offered the horses a taste!
1 cup soft unsalted butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, two cups white flour, one cup ground walnuts (we prefer pecans!).
Mix everything together. For Human-sized cookies, roll into tablespoon-sized balls.
Bake in a slow oven (ca. 325 degrees F) for about 20 – 25 minutes.
Roll in powdered sugar while hot. Cool on wire racks, then roll them in powdered sugar again.
These are also called ‘Mexican Wedding Cakes” but in that case do not seem so Christmassy.
