Nutmeg Meltaways

A simple recipe for holiday cookies with a tasty touch of spice

Cookie recipes: Nutmeg Meltaways

Family and friends have enjoyed these melt-in-your-mouth cookies since I first began making them years ago. I love to bake and try to keep the cookie jar filled. For the holidays, the dusting of nutmeg is a tasty touch that everyone seems to like.


1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened

½ cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

¾ cup ground almonds (about 3 ounces), toasted

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 tablespoon ground nutmeg


1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Gradually add flour; mix well. Stir in the almonds.

2. Shape into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 300°F for 18–20 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

3. Combine confectioners’ sugar and nutmeg. Gently roll cooled cookies in sugar mixture.
