Love these cookies! I've made these for years, but I softened the butter more this year (I was baking bread, so the butter was almost to the point of melting in my very warm kitchen). Very soft butter is the key--so much better this year! I've tried them with walnuts and pecans, both work well, but I prefer pecans. I chop the nuts in my mini-chopper as I prefer them smaller. If you don't like nuts, mini chocolate chips are great. Don't over-bake these cookies, they will be slightly brown on the bottom. Carefully roll them in powdered sugar as soon as you take them out of the oven. For extra special cookies, roll them a second time once they've cooled.
