1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for garnish
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400.
Add vanilla. Mix salt with sifted flour.
Slowly add four to sugar mixture (about 1/2 cup at a time; stir well before adding more).
Stir in chopped nuts.
Using a teaspoon, roll into balls. Bake on a cookie sheet for 14-17 minutes.
We found that the cookies have very little spread, so you can put the quite close to each other. These are about one inch apart.
Cookies should be very lightly browned.
