Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups walnut halves
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Garnish:
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar

Method

Toast walnuts on baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven until fragrant, about 8 minutes. Let cool.

In food processor, pulse walnuts until fine. Remove 1-3/4 cups (425 mL) to shallow dish and set aside for coating.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in vanilla. Stir in flour, remaining walnuts and salt. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Shape by 1 tbsp (15 mL) into 2-inch (5 cm) long sticks; roll in reserved walnuts to coat. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined or ungreased baking sheets.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until light golden, about 18 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool.

Garnish: Dust with icing sugar. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.)
