1 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In large mixing bowl, cream butter and gradually add 3/4 cups powdered sugar. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour, salt, and pecans, mixing thoroughly. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes until done. Bottoms should be golden brown, but tops will still be white. While warm, roll in remaining powdered sugar, repeating a second time for a better cover. Cool on wire racks. Makes 36.
