These delicious cookies are among the messiest I’ve made.  However, they are fun to make with children, and they are so yummy that I overlook the clean-up hassles.  I have a special powdered sugar shaker that I use to sprinkle on the final coating of powdered sugar (it has a mesh top and cuts out any lumps in the sugar). 

1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature
2 cups flour
4 Tbl. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch salt
1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped coarsely
          Beat together slowly with a mixer until ingredients form a solid ball.  Form firm 1-inch balls, and place them on buttered cookie sheet. 
350 for 18 to 20 minutes, until edges are golden. 

1 cup powdered sugar
          Place in a small bowl.  Carefully (because these cookies are fragile and will easily break apart when hot) remove each cookie with a tablespoon and place it in the bowl, then scoop the powdered sugar over it to cover.  Shake off the excess powdered sugar and place on a cooling rack set atop some paper towels to catch the powdered sugar that will drop off.  When cookies cool, sprinkle again with powdered sugar. 

Makes 18 to 24 cookies.
