Russian Tea Cakes II (Christmas Baking)

1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
6 tablespoons icing sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup icing sugar, for rolling

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl cream butter, extract, and icing sugar until smooth. Blend in flour and walnuts until crumbly dough forms. Dough should hold its form when squeezed together, if not, add 1 teaspoon of milk at a time.
3. Form 1" round balls and place onto baking sheet. Bake until lightly brown on the bottom, 12-15 minutes.
4. Let cookies cool then roll into icing sugar once or twice, whatever you like! Serve & enjoy!
