How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350° F. Spread the walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in oven, tossing occasionally, until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes; let cool. In a food processor, process the walnuts until finely ground.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together the ground walnuts, flour, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

Step 3

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and ⅓ cup of the sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla.

Step 4

Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix).

Step 5

Shape the dough into balls (about 1 tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

Step 6

Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until just beginning to brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7

Place the remaining ⅓ cup of sugar on a plate. A few at a time, roll the cookies in the sugar to coat, then dust with additional cinnamon.
