    I'm looking for this recipe for my mom It has Chopped walnuts (she thinks) and no chocolate. It was from a magazine 20 years ago. Any ideas on what it could be?

    ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 cup cake flour
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    pinch of salt
    extra sugar for rolling
    12 Diamond Harvest Reserve Walnut Halves

    In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add vanilla extract and beat well. Add the cake flour and salt and beat on low speed until smooth. The dough will be soft and a little sticky. Divide the dough into 12 small balls then roll into sugar, (a little extra flour dusted on your hands will prevent them sticking and help the rolling process.

    Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place cookies about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet then press a walnut half into the top of each cookie. Bake until lightly golden, 10 to12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    Yields 12 cookies

    Variation: For an extra crunch you can remove ¼ cup of the flour and add a ½ cup of finely toasted, chopped walnuts to the dough.
