Holiday Butter Cookies

Here are some delicious cookies that have a nice buttery almond flavor, and are coated with powdered sugar.  These cookies are perfect for Christmas, or any other time of the holiday season.

1 stick of butter
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of almond extract
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of powdered sugar (plus enough to roll the cookies in)
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 cup of nuts (chopped)

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, almond extract, and salt together.
Blend in the flour, baking powder, and the pieces of nuts.
Next, scoop out a small amount of dough, and form into balls on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for about 22 to 25 minutes, or until just golden brown.
Roll the cookies in powdered sugar, and allow to cool.
