My M-I-L made these for ages and now a favorite I do every year. Maybe to go with the Russian Tea recipe on the thread. :)

1 Cup butter
1/2 Cups sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 & 1/4 Cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 Cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Mix butter, sugar, vanilla thoroughly. Stir flour and salt together; blend into butter mixture and add nuts. Chill dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until let but not brown. While still warm roll in sifted powdered sugar and again after cooled. Store in covered container, makes about 3 dozen.
