Mexican Wedding Cookies

One year I was teaching, the students made food for a project. This is one of the recipes I kept because it was so good! Enjoy!

1 c butter, softened
3/4 c sifted powdered sugar
2 c all-purpose flour
1 t vanilla (Mexican is the best)
1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
powdered sugar

1. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add 3/4 cup powdered sugar, beating well. Add flour, mixing well. Stir in vanilla and pecans.
2. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool slightly. Roll warm cookies in additional powdered sugar. Cool completely on wire racks.
