I made these cookies a while ago, but never got them on the blog. I can't say they were my favorite, but if you like nutty cookies, you'll probably enjoy these.
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 cup flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Cream butter. Beat in honey, salt, and almond extract. Gradually add in flour and then stir in pecans or walnuts.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Roll dough into balls and place two inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 35 minutes.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before rolling in powdered sugar. Allow to cool fully and then roll in powdered sugar.
Yields: about 3 dozen cookies
