1.) Sift together flour, powdered
sugar & salt in large mixing bowl.
Add the shortening, vanilla, and
chopped nuts. Using low speed of electric mixer, mix all ingredients until just blended.
2.) Roll dough into 1½" cylinders.
Refridgerate for at least 30 minutes
until firm enough to slice.
3.) Preheat oven to 350º. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Slice into 3/8" thick slices. Place
cookies on prepared cookie sheets.
4.) Bake at 350º for 10-15 minutes.
Cookies should be white, if they turn brown, reduce the heat.
(I sometimes add a little baking powder if I want them a little firmer.)
