Ingredients

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 1/4

    cups walnuts toasted, cooled

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter - (2 sticks) room temperature

  • 2 1/2

    cups powdered sugar

  • 1

    large egg yolk

  • 5

    teaspoons brandy

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift first 4 ingredients into medium bowl. Transfer 2 tablespoons flour mixture to processor; add walnuts. Process until walnuts are finely chopped. Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Add 1 cup powdered sugar and beat until well blended. Add egg yolk, brandy, and vanilla and beat to blend. Beat in flour mixture. Add walnut mixture; stir with spatula to blend. Using 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie, shape dough into balls; arrange on prepared sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake cookies 12 minutes. Reverse sheets. Bake cookies until brown on bottom, cracked on top and just beginning to color, about 12 minutes longer. Sift remaining 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar thickly over hot cookies and cool on sheets. (Can be made 4 days ahead. Store airtight between sheets of waxed paper at room temperature.) This recipe yields about 38 cookies.
