  • In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the softened butter, and 1 cup of confectionery sugar.
  • Slowly add in the flour, extract, water, and egg.
  • Combine dough on low speed to avoid a cloud of flour. Dough will be stiff.
  • Turn off the stand mixer, remove the bowl from the base, and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. Fold in the chopped nuts by hand.
  • Scoop dough using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop.
  • Roll cookie dough in your hands to form ball shapes, and add cookies to the sheet. Leave one inch of space between balls.
  • Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes. They should feel firm to the touch, and slightly golden in color.
  • Cool cookies for 5 minutes before rolling them in powdered sugar mixture.
  • Allow cookies to cool fully before adding them to any storage containers. Enjoy!
