Preparation

Line rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or leave ungreased; set aside.

In food processor, whirl walnut halves with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar until finely ground.

In large bowl, beat butter until fluffy; stir in nut mixture, then vanilla and salt. Stir in flour, 1 cup (250 mL) at a time. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; stir in. Shape by heaping teaspoonfuls (5 mL) into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls. Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on prepared pans. Cover lightly; chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 325°F (160°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until bottoms are golden, about 22 minutes. Let rest on pans for about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle remaining icing sugar into shallow wide bowl. Working with about 6 cookies at a time, place, rounded side down, in sugar; roll to coat all sides. Place, right side up, on racks to let cool.

Press icing sugar through sieve to sift. Roll cookies again. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.)
