  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar + more to coat

  • Chop nuts

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (flour and salt) and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour and salt, then 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar. Mix until just blended. Add chopped nuts. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
