Russian Tea Cakes

These are my favorite "Christmas cookies" and I usually end up making at least a double batch or more before the season is over.
Russian Tea Cakes
1 cup softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup walnuts
2 1/4 c. flour
extra powdered sugar for rolling cookies in
In a lg. bowl combine first 4 ingredients with mixer. Stir in walnuts and flour. Roll dough into 1 inch balls; place 1 in. apart on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes until firm to touch but not brown. Do not over bake. While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool; re-roll in powdered sugar before serving.

One of my favorites. We call them Mexican cakes and made dozens for my wedding. We make a pink star flower on the top of each one.
