walnut sugar cookies
3/4 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons orange flower water
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Toast the walnuts until golden brown and fragrant, it might take about 6 minutes. Let cool, then chop about half of the nuts, 1/2 cup chopped. Pulse the remaining nuts in the food processor until finely ground, 1/4 cup ground. 

Stir the flour, baking powder, salt and nuts together in a medium bowl. Set aside.

In another medium bowl, beat the butter, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until the mixture gets light and fluffy.

At low speed, stir in the nut mixture to make a crumbly dough. Bring the dough together, mix it by hand. Make 1 inch balls and set it on a baking sheets with parchment. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake until the cookies set and start to brown about 18 minutes.

Remove cookies from the oven and immediately sprinkle them lightly with the orange water. Do not soak the cookies. Put the confectioners' sugar in a bag, and add 5 to 6 of the warm cookies to it. Very gently toss the cookies to coat with sugar. Remove them from the bag and cool cookies on a rack. Repeat with remaining cookies.
