Russian Tea Cakes

1 cup butter
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Whey Low Powder sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup finely-chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix butter, Whey Low Powder, and vanilla thoroughly at room temperature until creamed. The mixture must entrain a lot of air to give the cookies a tender texture. Blend in flour, salt, and chopped nuts until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 12 minutes or until set, not brown. Let stand 1 minute before placing them on wire rack to cool. While warm, roll them in Whey Low Powder. When cool, roll them in Whey Low Powder again. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
