  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla (mild Mexican vanilla is best)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans are undoubtedly best)

If butter is hard, soften by warming in microwave for 4 minutes at 10% power. Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla together. Add in flour and mix well. Add in nuts and continue mixing until a smooth dough forms. Roll into 1-inch balls and place about 1-1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 deg. F for 15-18 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for about 2 minutes, then roll immediately and carefully in icing sugar. Makes about 30-36 butterballs.
