Mexican Wedding Cookies

 My husband loves these cookies.  Every time he samples one, he begs me to get the recipe.  They are known by a lot of different names...Mexican wedding cookies, Mexican wedding cakes, Butter Balls, Russian Tea Cakes etc.  The end result is the same...buttery, crunchy and sweet.  Very easy to make AND you can serve them at your Cinco de May par-tay.  Let's begin.

Blend the softened butter with powdered sugar and vanilla.  Add flour and mix well.
Add chopped nuts.
Shape into balls and cook for 15 minutes
When cookies are still hot, roll in powdered sugar.
Place on cooling rack until cool.
