Directions:
Cream butter and powdered sugar. Stir in flour, vanilla, and nuts. Form into firm balls, because the mixture is kind of crumbly. Bake at 300 degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until very light brown on bottom of cookie. Do NOT over-bake. Cool on wire rack. Roll cookie in powdered sugar and store in air tight container. Can roll cookie in more powdered sugar before serving, if you'd like.
