Mexican Wedding Cookies


1 cup butter room temp

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

additional powdered sugar for rolling.

Instructions: Mix butter sugar and vanilla  until light and fluffy  add flour and salt until well mixed  stir in the pecan. Chill the dough, then roll  into balls about an inch in diameter. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 12 minutes--watch carefully they need to be done but not browned.  Remove and as soon as cool enough to handle roll in additional powdered sugar.  Store airtight--use wax paper between layers of cookie.
