In bowl, beat butter with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar until smooth; beat in vanilla.
With wooden spoon, stir in flour, salt and nuts, using hands to finish mixing and form dough into ball.
Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Using hands, form dough into 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls; place 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in 325Â°F (160Â°C) oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
Remove to racks and let cool for 5 minutes.
Roll balls in remaining sugar; return to racks and let cool completely.
Roll again in sugar. (Snowballs can be layered between waxed paper in airtight container and stored for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months.)
