Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter with the 1 cup sugar and the egg in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts, blending well to make a stiff dough. Gather dough into a ball. Roll dough one-quarter at a time to a thickness slightly more than ¼inch on a lightly floured surface with lightly floured rolling pin. Cut rounds with a cookie cutter. Place dough, 1 inch apart on ungreased large cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned. Roll warm cookies in ¼ super fine sugar. Place cookies on wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container and enjoy!
