1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)

2 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of salt

2 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

extra icing sugar (powdered sugar) for coating


1Preheat your oven to 200°C/400°F

2Line two to three baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.

3In a mixer, cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in your vanilla and salt, scraping down the sides to ensure everything is incorporated.

4Gradually add your flour to your butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

5Stir through your nuts until evenly distributed.

6If your dough is very soft, chill it for 20-30 minutes or until firm.

7Roll your cookies into 1 inch balls and place them onto your baking sheet.

8Bake for 8-12 minutes or until lightly golden.

9Leave your cookies to cool for 10-20 minutes on the trays.

10Once your cookies have cooled and they are just warm, place some sifted icing sugar in a bowl and roll your cookies around in the icing sugar until coated.

11Cool your cookies completely. If needed, roll them once more in icing sugar when they are completely cool.
