DIRECTIONS

  • Heat over to 350
  • Combine butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla* in a large bowl and mix with electric mixer for about 3 minutes on high speed until mix is light and fluffy.
  • Add flour, salt and nuts to the butter mix slowly at low speed until all ingredients are blended.
  • Divid cookie dough in half. Shape each cookie dough portion into a log, 1 1/2" in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
  • Cut the dough logs into 1/4" slices and place 1/2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Remove cookies from the baking sheet immediately and roll them in the remaining powdered sugar.
  • Place cookies on a rack to cool before storing in a container.
  • *I always use Mexican vanilla when baking and it makes a difference.
