Italian Butter Cookies

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Fransisco. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here).


1 lb. soft butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup walnuts, chopped fine
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar

  • Whip butter with mixer. Continue mixing at low speed and add 1 cup powdered sugar, walnuts, then the flour, a few tablespoons at a time. Add vanilla.
  • Drop cookie batter, by teaspoonful quantities, on ungreased cookie sheet. The dough is fairly stiff so just roll the batter in little balls and then press down with a glass or your thumb to shape.
  • Bake 15 - 20 minutes at 350º. Remove from pan, sprinkle with a little powdered sugar.
