Directions:
Bake 325 14-16 min.

Beat together butter, 1/2 C powdered sugar and honey. Add flour, nuts, vanilla, and salt. Mix thoroughly, using hands. It will be soft. Shape into 1" balls. Place 1 1/2" apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake till cookies are tinged with brown. I check the bottoms. While cookies are still warm, roll in powdered sugar. After they cool, roll them again in powdered sugar.

Personal Notes:
I use a watermelon baller so my cookies don't become giants. You can refrigerate the dough so it becomes a little stiffer and easier to handle before making into the balls. These are easily doubled. If the cookie starts to fall apart on you when removing from the cookie sheet, leave it on the pan for 1 or 2 minutes then remove them.
