Walnut Cookies - The Everything Chinese Cookbook

Hubby Loved Them!! 

2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups flour
3/4 cup lard
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 325.

In a large bowl, sift the baking powder into the flour. Cut the lard into the flour and mix with your fingers until it forms the texture of tiny balls.

Add the walnuts, vanilla extract, sugar, and 3 eggs. Mix into the dough to form a paste.

Take a piece of dough and form into a round ball the size of a large golf ball. Place the ball in the palm of one hand and press down with the palm of the other hand to form a flat circle about 2 inches in diameter. Continue with remainder of the dough.

Place the dough circles on a greased baking tray. Brush lightly with the beaten egg. Bake at 325 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. Cool and store in a sealed container.

Makes 28-30 cookies.
