This is another family favorite recipe from my mom. These are probably one of my favorite cookies that she makes every year.
1 c softened butter or margarine
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c finely chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp salt
1. Heat oven to 400F
2. Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla in large bowl. You will probably have to use your hands with this. Mix in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together
3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet
4. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly on wire rack.
5. Roll warm cookies in powered sugar. Let cookies cool for a few more minutes. Roll in powdered sugar again.
