Personal Notes:
My mom called these Pecan Sandies, but my daughter Cindy is allergic to pecans so I started using ground almonds for her, just switch out half of the vanilla for almond extract. That worked well so I experimented with other nuts and other forms. Hazelnuts and walnuts both work great.
You can form them into little logs and drizzle with or dip the ends into melted chocolate instead of rolling in the powdered sugar.
You can also roll the dough into 2" logs, wrap in plastic and chill overnight. Then unwrap and slice into 1/4" slices, sprinkle with sugar and bake as above.
