"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Heat oven to 400

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla. Work in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 minutes or until set but not brown. These can be a little tricky, if you cook them too long they'll be dry and crumbly. They shouldn't have hardly any color (browness) when you remove them from the oven.

While still warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool, then roll in powdered sugar again.

Personal Notes:
These have been a Christmas tradition for many years. It's the only time of year I make them for some reason. They'd make a good Easter cookie too.
