Almond Butter Buttons
1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sifted icing sugar, plus more for rolling cookies
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup ground almonds
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the vanilla then gradually add the 1/2 cup icing sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Sift the flour with salt. Add gradually to the butter mixture. Add the ground almonds and mix well.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 20 minutes, or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the baking sheets and roll in powdered sugar while still hot. Cool on wire racks and roll cookies again in powdered sugar before serving.
