Hungarian Cookies

Hello all, Christmas is coming and I would like to share a cookie recipe with you that I make every year. I also make sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies as well, but these are my favorite.

You will need:

2 sticks of butter at room temperature, softened

2 cups of walnuts chopped into very small pieces

4 Tablespoons of Vanilla extract ( yep, that's a lot! )

1 cup of powered sugar

2 cups of all purpose flour

At least a cup of powered sugar to roll the cookies in when cooled.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the softened butter and chopped walnuts till well mixed.

3. Add the Vanilla extract and mix.

4. Add the powered sugar and mix.

5. Then lastly add the flour a cup at a time and mix it well, it will be very doughy.

6. Roll them into about 1 inch balls.

7. Place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet a little far apart.

8. Bake for about 12 minutes, ovens can vary, they should be a little light brown on the bottoms. Check them to make sure they feel crunchy on the top not doughy. (check them around 10 minutes)

9. Take them out to cool, you can put them on tin foil.

10. When cool roll them in the powered sugar and put them in a tin or plastic container with a lid.  

They will make about 2 to 3 dozen and they are really good.

I've seen these cookies under a number of names. They are one of my favorites of the season.

I love these, but haven't made them in many years.

This fall I have been baking a lot of pumpkin bread and icing with maple cream cheese frosting.  The frosting is also good on graham crackers.

Totally great.  My daughter makes at least one batch every Christmas.  My wife's specialty is double chocolate chip and various flavors of fudge.

Cookies looked good. I normally don't indulge in sweets but love peppermint bark this time of the year. I make it, buy cookies, ice cream, whatever form it comes in.

We call those "Snowballs" and I usually prefer them without the walnuts, but that's only a personal preferences. 

The same dough can be used for cutout cookies too [minus confectioner's sugar] and we usually frost those with homemade buttercream.
