SAND BALLS WITH HONEY

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tbsp honey
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
sifted powdered sugar for rolling

In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, powdered sugar, and honey at medium speed until well combined.  Beat in the flour, walnuts, vanilla extract and the salt.  Mix together thoroughly, this may require using your hands. 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls and place 1 1/2-inches apart on greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 325 degrees for 14 to 16 minutes or until the cookies are just lightly browned.  While still warm, roll the cookies in powdered sugar.  Cool on wire racks and roll in powdered sugar a second time.

Yield: 4 dozen cookies
