Crispy Nuggets

A holiday time staple!  I often double the recipe since this doesn’t produce that many cookies.

Total cook time: About an hour

Crispy Nuggets

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioner sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup confectioners sugar – for rolling cookies


  • Preheat oven to 325 F.  Use an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Sift together flour and salt.
  • In the mixer, cream together shortening, butter, and confectioners sugar.
  • Blend in the almond extract, vanilla, and nuts.
  • Gradually add in the flour and salt mixture.  Mix until dough is smooth.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Once out of the oven, roll in confectioners sugar while hot.
