White chocolate and toasted walnuts shine in this delicious cookie recipe. The cookies are finished with a dusting of powdered sugar to simulate snow. They are delicious and easy to make. Better yet, they may be made ahead and frozen up to 1 month.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 3-1/2 dozen


  • 6 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt white chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is smooth.

Beat butter and 1 cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer 5 minutes or until fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Add vanilla, beating well. Add melted chocolate, and beat 30 seconds.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in walnuts.

Drop dough by heaping Tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake at 350 F. for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks, and cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Freeze cookies up to 1 month in an airtight container, if desired.

Yield: 3-1/2 dozen
