Nut Butter Balls30 Reviews
“Rich and buttery. If you don't have almond extract, you can use 2 teaspoons of vanilla in its place. Any type of nuts can be used in place of the walnuts.” - by Marcia
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- Mix butter or margarine with sugar until creamy. Add salt, almond or vanilla extract, flour, and nuts. Mix WELL.
- Chill dough until firm enough to handle.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

"Yes! These are absolutely NUT BUTTER BALLS! I followed the directions exactly. Made 9 dozen (that's 108 cookies, recipe actually made more so don't be afraid to make them a little bigger) for a Cook..." See moreie Exchange Party for the Holidays. They are just like I remembered as a child. I used the vanilla extract and used less walnuts (finely ground) as a reviewer suggested.
