Swirled Snowball Cookies

Swirled Snowball Cookies
(recipe by Nestle Toll House)
3 sticks butter, softened
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
10-oz pkg Nestle Swirled Holiday Morsels
1 Tbsp vanille extract
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/4 tsp salt
Extra powdered sugar

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. BEAT butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in morsels and nuts. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets. BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets (I did this on the cooling rack). Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired. Store in airtight containers. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen

They are very, very yummy!
