Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Mix in the orange blossom water. Add the flour and walnut meal to the bowl and beat until coarse pebbles form and no dry spots remain—it will look crumbly. Use your hands to press the crumbs together into a ball of dough.

Step 3

Use a 1 tablespoon scoop to portion dough, rolling each one into a ball and placing it on the cookie sheet, leaving at least an inch of space between each. Slide into preheated oven and bake until just golden, 18-20 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once they have cooled completely, roll them in the powdered sugar, if desired.
