Mexican Wedding Cookies/Russian Teacakes

Mom came over tonight during priesthood session and we decorated some cookies.  She brought Betty Crocker's Cooky Book from who knows what year that she always made cookies from.  Since the book was here, I thought I'd see if the Mexican Wedding Cookie recipe was in it that I used to make as a girl, and it is!  Instead of writing it on a card, I'll just jot it down here and print it!

1 C butter
1/2 C confectioners' sugar
1 t vanilla
2 1/4 C flour
1/4 t salt
3/4 C finely chopped nuts

Mix butter, sugar, and vanilla thoroughly.  Mix flour and salt together; blend in.  Mix in nuts.  Chill dough.

Heat oven to 400.  Roll dough in 1" balls.  Place on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes, or until set but not brown.  While still warm, roll in powdered sugar.  Cool.  Roll in sugar again.  Makes about 4 dozen 1" cookies.
