Butter Balls



2 cups soft butter                                       3 tsp vanilla

1 cup powdered sugar                              4 cups flour

2 cups chopped nuts (optional)

Mix everything together. Roll into balls. Roll in powdered sugar (extra powdered sugar – separate from the 1 cup powdered sugar originally included in recipe).

Bake in oven at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.

Roll in powdered sugar while still warm and then again when completely cooled.

* This recipe is not in the Amish Cooking cookbook. My mom gave me this recipe – we made this almost every year at Christmas and it was always a hit.

* I don’t like to put nuts in my cookies, so I always omit this. It’s a messy recipe (rolling in the powdered sugar 3 times), but so worth it. They melt in your mouth! Delicious!
