snowball cookies

I got this recipe from my Wymount ward cookbook. Submitted by Lori T*. I use the almond flavoring. They are so easy, buttery, and fit the season. You can fit a lot on one cookie sheet since they don't spread of rise. Only two batches and you're done and have 60 little cookies. I made these to give away for a ward activity, so we didn't eat them. OK I had one - seriously only one. But I sure wanted more!

1 c. butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar (plus more for later)
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla or almond flavoring
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Cream butter and sugar. Add flour, salt, flavoring and nuts. Combine well. Form into small balls. and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes. While still hot roll in additional powdered sugar
