"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Mix together the butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla, salt and flour to blend. Add nuts. Chill dough. Roll by either teaspoon or tablespoon into round balls. Bake in 400 degree oven for 7 to 12 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. While still warm roll in powdered sugar. When cool, roll in powdered sugar again.
These were one of my favorite Christmas cookies and the only ones that I always make.
