Christmas Hazelnut Balls


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup hazelnuts; or pecans
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioner's sugar

1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except the confectioner's sugar. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to mix thoroughly. 2. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes -- a very important step. 3. Form dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until set but not brown. Do not overcook. 4. Let stand 1 minute in pan then remove to wire rack. Cool until barely warm. Roll in sifted confectioners sugar. Cool completely, then just before serving, roll again in the confectioners sugar. Yield: about 20 balls. Do not make them too large or they will not cook properly
