1/2 lb butter; melted and cooled
2 tablespoon sugar, confectioners
1/2 cup sugar, confectioners
1 teaspoon baking powder, double acting
2 1/4 cup flour, all purpose
1/4 cup walnuts; finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the baking powder and stir together with a large spoon. Sift in the flour about 1/4 cup at a time beating well after each addition, then stir in the walnuts. On a lightly floured surface, pat 2 tablespoons of dough at a time into round cakes about 1 « inches in diameter and « inch thick. Shape into triangles by pinching and pulling out the sides of each cake with your thumbs and forefingers. If you prefer "S" shaped cookies, roll about 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time into ropes about 6 inches long and 1/4 inch in diameter, and twist them one at a time into S shapes. Place the cookies about 1 inch apart on a large baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Cool the cookies on a rack. Just before serving, sprinkle the cookies with the remaining « cup of confectioners sugar.
