Mexican Wedding Cakes

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (
I used pecans, but walnuts work too)
Extra confectioners' sugar for rolling cookies in

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Mix together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Work in the flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until set, but not brown. While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Let cool and then roll in powdered sugar again. 

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
