Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Walnut Shortbread

                                 I got this image from here


  • 1/2 cup walnuts toasted
  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine(1 stick) softened.

  1.    Preheat oven to 325o.  In food processor with knife blade attached, process walnuts with 1/2 cup flour until nuits are finely ground.
  2. In medium bowl,combine remaining 1 cup flour, sugar, and walnut mixture and stir until blended.
  3. With fingertips, blend butter into walnut mixture until well combined and crumbly.  With hand, press dough onto bottom of 9 inch square baking pan.
  4. Bake until light golden, 25to 30  minutes.  While still warm,cut into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into6 pieces. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  5. When cool,with small metal spatula, carefully remove cookies from pan.
I don't have a variation for this it was awesome I will be making these again.

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
