This is a recipe handed down from generation to generation in my family. Be aware you can't eat just one. They truly do melt in your mouth.
1 CUP BUTTER
6 TABLESPOONS CONF. SUGAR
2 CUPS FLOUR
1 TSP. VANILLA
1 CUP chopped nuts (optional)
CREAM BUTTER AND SUGAR, ADD OTHER INGREDIENTS. KNEAD WELL, ROLL INTO SMALL BALLS. FLATTEN SLIGHTLY WITH FORK.
BAKE 12-15 MINUTE IN MODERATE OVEN. WHILE HOT-SHAKE POWDERED SUGAR ON THEM.
Makes 24 cookies.
So easy. Enjoy!
Hint: Only melts in your mouth is you use REAL BUTTER. That's the key.
