This is an old standby recipe that I make for any occasion. They are so good and easy to make, You can change the recipe to Lemon butter cookies or Key Lime butter cookies, simply by deleting the vanilla and adding lemon or key lime juice instead, or be creative and come up with something entirely different. Such a versatile recipe,and I love the flavor...Enjoy!
Cream butter; gradually add confectioners sugar and the salt. Beat until light and fluffy. Add nuts and vanilla and blend in the flour, mixing well.
Shape into balls, using about a teaspoon for each cookie. Place onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 15 or 20 minutes. Do Not Brown. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar. After they have completely cooled, roll in sugar again.
