1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almond extract
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
½ teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
powdered sugar (for finishing baked cookies)

Instructions
Cream butter and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy; stir in vanilla and almond extracts. Whisk together flour and salt; add gradually to butter mixture; stir in chopped nuts. Chill dough if it seems too soft. Form dough into 1" balls and place onto parchment-lined or ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or just until the cookies start to turn light golden-brown; remove from oven and allow to cool slightly; while cookies are still warm (but NOT hot) remove them from baking sheets and roll, a few at a time, in powdered sugar until evenly coated; cool cookies completely on wire racks. Cookies may (optionally) be rolled in powdered sugar a second time once cooled to room temperature.
