Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- 2 Cups butter (4 sticks)
- 1 cup confectionery sugar (powdered)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups(6oz) chopped walnuts
Combine butter and sugar until fluffy.
(I use this alone at times with flavorings for a spread.)
Stir in the remaining ingredients.
Roll into balls. (about 2 teaspoons)
Place onto a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 12 min.
Transfer cookies to pan with a light coating of confectionery sugar and let cool completely.
When cooled, sift confectionery sugar over tops. (Use a sifter or small wire strainer.)
These cookies are very delicate, with a buttery, short bread flavor. They look beautiful, white and snowy! I usually have to make 4 batches to have enough!!!
