This is a favorite cookie in our family that has been made as long as I can remember. It is very similar to shortbread except it is dusted with icing (confectioner) sugar and should have nuts in it. We make it without as some of our family members don’t care for nuts. The top of my very ragged recipe says Always Double It Every Year. Note: I don’t usually put quite as much icing sugar on the top as this picture depicts. A little goes a long way.
- 1 cup Butter
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1/3 cup Icing Sugar
- ½ Tsp Salt
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 cup finely chopped Pecans or Almonds (optional)
Cream butter; add sugar, salt and vanilla. Cream well and stir in flour gradually. Add nuts.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet in moderate oven 325 degrees for 10 -15 minutes. While still warm dust with icing sugar.
