Nutmeg Meltaways:

This is one of the cookies we are making for Christmas. My mom and I love them!

Nutmeg Meltaways Recipe

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. xanthan gum
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup powder sugar
1 tblsp. nutmeg

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and xanthan gum; mix well. Stir in walnuts until well combined. Form into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on a wire wrack. Combine the powder sugar and nutmeg in a small bowl. After the cookies have cooled, roll each one in the sugar mixture. Store in an airtight container.

Note:
-These don't really freeze the best.
