Using walnut size balls of dough, roll quickly between the palms of your hands, shaping dough to the size of your little finger. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees, ten to twelve minutes until set, but not brown. While warm, roll in confectioner's sugar. Cool and roll once more in sugar.
