Beurre italien balle Cookies

These Italian butter ball cookies have been in my family since forever. To prove this fact, when I bake a batch of these delicious delights, and my kids try them, the first thing they say is, “These remind me of Noni”. This is the power of food, and the memories it triggers.

Back to the cookieThe butterballs are a fond memory of mine during the Christmas holiday’s, but they shouldn’t be limited to only Christmas. The simple fact, is there’s nothing Christmasy about these balls. Bien sûr, their topped with powder sugar, but that’s the only thing.

My Noni would make these upon demand. They were said to be a family recipe, but I’ve found this recipe all over the internet. One thing that is distinctive about my recipe, is that it’s a very light, rich cookie. You can tell when it bakes, it doesn’t split. De plus, this cookie also has chopped walnuts. I wouldn’t substitute another nut in this recipe, as the walnuts are perfect for it. This is a powerhouse recipe loaded with flavor, and delicacy. Something I hope you will keep in your family for years to come.
