  • 1 tablespoon plus pound unsalted butter, softened
  • cup granulated sugar
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts or filberts
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350. With a pastry brush, spread the tablespoon of softened butter evenly over a large baking sheet and set it aside.

    2. In a deep bowl, cream the remaining pound of the softened butter with the granulated sugar by beating and mashing them against the sides of the bowl with the back of a large spoon until light and fluffy.

    3. Sprinkle the salt over the flour and add the flour mixture to the butter cup at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and chopped nuts.

    4. To shape each baton, cut off a heaping tablespoon of the dough and roll it with your hands into a cylinder about 2 inches long and inch in diameter.

    5. Arrange the batons 1 inch apart on the buttered baking sheet and bake them in the middle of the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are a delicate golden color.

    6. With a wide metal spatula, transfer the batons to wire racks. When they are completely cool, roll each cookie in the confectioners' sugar to coat it evenly on all sides. In a tightly covered jar or tin, "batons de noisettes" can safely be kept for several weeks.
