I make these delicious shortbread-y cookies every year at Christmas. 🙂 Today, my sister made them during our baking day.
Ingredients

1 cup room temperature butter
2 cups powdered sugar, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups finely chopped walnuts

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine butter, 1 cup powdered sugar and vanilla in bowl of electric mixer; beat on medium speed until well blended.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Add to creamed mixture; mix well. Stir in walnuts; mix well. Roll dough into walnut-size balls; place on ungreased baking sheets about 1 12 inches apart.

Bake 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown slightly. Cool on baking sheets until cool enough to handle, but still warm. While still warm, roll in remaining 1 cup powdered sugar; place on cooling racks to cool completely.
