1 c butter, at room temperature
1/2 c confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond exract, optional
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 c flour
1 c finely chopped pecans
confectioners sugar for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, 1/2 c confectioners sugar, vanilla and almond extract with electric beaters. Mix in salt, flour and chopped pecans. Dough will be crumbly. Press into 1" balls and place on unbaked cookie sheet about 1/2" to 1" apart. They don't flatten much.
2. Bake in preheated oven until bottoms are golden, about 15 to 20 minutes. The tops will still be white. DON'T let them burn. Roll immediately in powdered sugar and once again after they've cooled. Enjoy!
