1. Have butter at room temperature. You may try solid margarine with
almost the same success as with butter. Place butter in a mixing bowl.
Beat with electric mixer. Gradually add granulated sugar while continuing
to beat; stir in vanilla extract and salt. Add ground nuts and flour; roll
into a ball and chill for 15 minutes.
2. Break off pieces of dough and roll between palms of your hands to
form balls the size of a small walnut. Do not make these too large. Place
on ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake in preheated 300-degree oven for 18-20 minutes. Remove and
roll, while still warm, in powdered sugar.
Yield: About 5 dozen.
