I always make these for Christmas. Fits into the Christmas theme; has nuts, on the other hand it balances out all those chocolaty treats. Looks good on the tray of assorted goodies and freezes remarkably well. I put in walnuts, I have a tree, but it doesn't have to be walnuts, whatever nuts you fancy will be yummy. Let it cool about 4 minutes before rolling them into the icing sugar. If the cookies are too hot they absorb twice as much icing sugar than need be and if you let them cool, the icing sugar will not adhere to the surface. So set the timer.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup + 1/2 cup icing sugar
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

• Cream the butter.
• Add 1/2 cup icing sugar gradually.
• Add the flour, salt and vanilla.
• Pinch off small pieces of dough and shape into balls.
• Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
• Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
• Peek under a cookie, if its pleasantly browned, the cookies are done.
• Remove cookies from the oven and let them cool and solidify for 4 minutes.
• Roll cookies into the remaining icing sugar while warm.
