More Christmas Cookies.... :o)

Well its getting to be that time of year when I start baking and trying out new cookie recipes on my family...

I got this recipe from a friend and it was a hit with my kids... so I thought I would share...

1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter in large bowl. Add sugar, cream until light. Stir in vanilla. Mix in flour and salt. Stir in nuts.
Shape into balls.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Roll in additional powdered sugar straight out of oven. Roll again when cool.
Yeilds: About 36 cookies
