Brysell is the Swedish spelling for Brussels. A festive refrigerator cookie that is so easy to make.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the flour and vanilla. Roll dough into two logs about 10 inches long. Roll dough logs in finely chopped nuts so that the whole surface is coated. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to two hours.
  2. 2 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice dough logs into 1/4 inch thick slices and place them on a cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes.

  1. I made this cookie because the picture looked so scrumptious even though the reviews were hit or miss. I wanted the challenge. Made as written. When I tried slicing the frozen roll it did crumble and so I JUST LET IT SIT ON THE COUNTER A BIT TILL IT SOFTENED UP. IT WAS PERFECTLY EASY - Read more ...
  2. I didn't care for this recipe. There is a LOT of butter in the cookies and doesn't hold after chilling. The cooking then either burns them or won't cook.
  3. We spell Bryssel! Try 2 1/4 cups flour and 200 grams butter. You can also roll the cakes in coloured sugar. It's the usual.
  4. This recipe didn't work for me - after chilling the logs it never held together and was crumbly mess. This doesn't deserve to be on anybodys list!
  5. Actually I had no problem with these cookies. The dough came together very nicely. Baked they had a nice crumbly/soft texture. I gave them to a couple people last year as xmas gifts and they were hits.
