Christmas Snowball Cookies

Also known as, Mexican Wedding Cookies or Russian Teacakes

1 c. butter, softened

1/2 c. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 1/4 c. flour

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 c. finely chopped nuts (I like pecans)

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.  Stir in flour, salt and nuts.  Shape into 1 inch balls, place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until set, but not brown, about 8-9 minutes.  Roll in powdered sugar while warm, cool.  Roll in powdered sugar again.
