Mrs Newman was my landlady for 15 years and one day I was at work and we had a horrific snow storm. I was stuck over night at the Nursing home, where I was working. We could not leave for home and the afternoon and evening shift could not get in. I called my girls and they told me, Mr Newman was going to come for them, if I could not get home. She was a sweetie and kept the girls for 2 days. She kept them busy with this cookie recipe that I am sharing with you. There was no name just a piece of paper with the recipe, so the my girls called this Mrs Newman's cookies!

2. Sift the dry ingredients the 2 Cups of Flour and the 6 tbls of Confectioners sugar.
3. Cream the butter and vanilla until smooth. Combine the dry mixture and still until blended. Mix in the chopped walnuts.
4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, roll in the remaining confectioners' sugar. I roll them a 2nd time. Kids love this part!
