Russian Butter Cookies

This is one of my favorites Cookie recipes!  I try to make them every year for Christmas to put in the cookie packages I send out, but usually most of them end up in my stomach rather than in the mail! Make sure the little balls are bite sized because they will crumble all over the place if you try to take a bite out of one!  But they sure are melt-in-your-mouth good!

Russian Butter Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. Salt
2 ½ c. flour
¾ c. chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugar thoroughly, stir in remaining ingredients. Roll into small balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 17 minutes until just starting to brown. These burn very easily so watch them carefully. Shake in powdered sugar while still hot, and again when cool.
