December 22--Ready for Another Cookie!

Mexican Wedding Cakes
This is one of those go to recipes when you need a quick cookie.
1 C of butter
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
cream together till fluffy
Then add 1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 C all purpose flour
Mix well
1 C chopped nuts (your choice)
Mix till dough holds together nicely.
Roll into balls, place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets
Bake in 400* oven for about 8-9 minutes
Once removed from the oven, roll the balls into powder sugar
and pop into your mouth!

Any number of different items can be added--chocolate chips, crushed peppermint, Hersey kisses in the middle of ball before baking--it's fun to experiment.

There are lots of names for this cookie--what do you call them?
