Prosperity Cookies

I didn't get enough of my mom's mouthwatering sand tarts at Christmas, so I baked some yesterday. 

"These are good but really rich," Hubby said. 

    •1 cup butter, softened 
    •6 tbsp powdered sugar (my grandmother wrote "more" here, so I used heaping tablespoons)
    •1 cup pecans, chopped 
    •2 cups flour 
    •1 tsp vanilla extract
    •1 tsp almond extract 
     •Pinch of salt (if butter is unsalted)

Roll into balls. Bake at 350*. While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar. 

"Cookies are made of butter and love." ~Norwegian proverb
