1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
Cream together butter and powdered sugar.
Add flour, vanilla, and pecans until well mixed.
Keep mixing.... Now it's ready!
NOTE: This will be a very stiff dough and if you're using an electric mixer, just mix it until the dough is about the size of peas. Use your hands to form it into a ball, wrap in plastic, then chill for about an hour.
Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 325° (no hotter).
You may want to turn the cookie sheet the last 5 minutes of baking to ensure even browning. When cooled, roll each cookie into powdered sugar. Makes about 40 small cookies.
