Mexican Wedding Cookie Recipe

1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup ground pecans
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine ground nuts, flour, and salt. Mix well. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until you get a crumbly batter. Wrap dough in plastic and chill 1-2 hours or until firm. Shape into small balls using one teaspoon of batter. Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are firm to the touch. Cool 1 minute on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack.

While cookies are still warm, shake a few at a time in a bag with confectioners sugar.
