Snowball Cookies

This recipe screams holiday time!  Another favorite from my childhood that would always be in our Christmas cookie jar during the month of December.


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt

Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla at medium speed of an electric mixer.  Add flour and salt until combined.  Chill dough for one hour.  Roll into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Roll in powdered sugar twice, let cool.  Roll once more.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies
