* See note below.
1/2 to 1 cup nuts
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, at room temperature (2 sticks)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Additional powdered sugar (about 1/2 cup)

measuring cups

baking sheets
pancake turner
wire cooling rack
small bowl


* "Pretty for a plate of cookies for company or your teacher. Fun to make and delicious to eat!" Have Ready: 1. Coarsely chop the nuts on the cutting board. Measure and set aside.

2. Turn on the oven to 375°.

3. Combine flour and salt in the small mixer bowl. Stir with a spoon and set aside.

4. Combine butter or margarine, sugar, water and vanilla in the large mixer bowl. Beat on medium speed until well mixed, stopping the mixer and scraping the bowl several times.

5. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until all the flour is moistened, scraping the bowl several times. The mixture will be crumbly. Add nuts and mix well.

6. With your hands, form the dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls about 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Lift with a pancake turner to a wire rack to cool.

8. When slightly cooled, roll each ball into a small bowl of powdered sugar. Finish cooling on the wire rack. For a more "frosted" look, roll balls in additional powdered sugar when completely cooled.

9. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
