Ingredients

  • 1

    cup butter, softened

  • 1/2

    cup powdered sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla (or a little more)

  • 2 1/4

    cups all purpose flour

  • 2/3

    cup walnuts or pecans, finely chopped

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • Powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Mix the softened butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. I used a hand mixer for this job. Add the flour, nuts and salt. Mix till combined. The dough will be dry but can be pressed together. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Put on parchment lined baking sheet an inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies to a cooling rack. Slightly cool cookies and roll into powdered sugar. Place the cookies back on the cooling rack and let them totally cool. Roll them in powdered sugar when cool.
