I was this years old when I realized how incredibly easy these cookies are to make.
1 c. butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 c. flour
1 c. finely chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, and/or walnuts)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar. add the vanilla then the flour. mix in the nuts. Roll into balls and lightly press the balls to flatten with the bottom of a glass. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms start to brown. While they are still warm, toss in more powdered sugar. Cool on a wire rack
