Russian Tea Cakes

If you are not into eating balls of butter and sugar, this cookie is probably not for you. But if you are like me and love everything containing butter and sugar, russian tea cakes will be your new best friends. Just don't breath in too deeply before popping these into your mouth or you may choke on some extra powdered sugar. Trust me, it's not so funny when it happens to you.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts
