1 C. butter softened
1/2 C. confectioners (powdered) sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 C. finely chopped nuts ( I use walnuts, but pecans are also good)
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix throughly butter, sugar, and vanilla. Mix first then work in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until set but not brown. While warm, roll in confectioners sugar. Cool. Roll in confectioners sugar again (this is the best step if you are a kid, or kid-at-heart!). When the first layer melts into the cookie it is like icing, so the more powder, the more SNOW!
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
