Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the vanilla then gradually add the ½ cup confectioners sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Sift the flour, measure, and then sift again with the salt. Add gradually to the butter mixture. Add the pecans and mix well.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten very slightly using the bottom of a glass, then bake for 20 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the baking sheets and roll in powdered sugar while still hot. Cool on wire racks and roll cookies again in powdered sugar. These are cute in jars, bags or plates.
This Russian tea cookie tastes mighty nice with hot chocolate or some peppermint herb tea.

My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
