Snowball Cookies

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups walnuts, finely chopped
3 tablespoons palm sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
100g/4oz unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Yields 20-25
Preheat oven to 160C/300F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix flour, walnuts, salt, sugar in a large bowl. Add the vanilla extract. Cut butter into little pieces. Rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Form the dough into small balls (approx. size of a walnut) and place on the baking sheet. Leave some space between the cookies on the sheet.
Bake for 30-35 minutes. While they are still warm, but cool enough to touch, roll the cookies in some powdered sugar. Set aside on a rack to cool completely. When cool, dust again in powdered sugar.
