In a bowl, beat together the butter and the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla. Blend together flour, salt and baking powder (just a dash). Add flour mixture to butter mixture, blending well. Add the chopped nuts, combine well. Roll the dough out into two balls. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Flatten dough out and cut into 15 to 16 equal size pieces per ball of dough. Shape into small marble sized balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375F to 400F for 10 to 12 minutes each sheet until firm but not brown. While still warm, roll into powdered sugar or dust with powdered sugar. Let cool, roll again in powdered sugar. Makes about 30 cookies.
