Combine flour and salt; sift into bowl. Stir in farina; reserve. Beat butter or margarine until creamy. Beat in sugar gradually. Blend in vanilla. Add farina mixture and pecans, 1/3 at a time, and mix well after each addition. Chill dough about 1 hour or until it can be easily shaped into balls with hands. Shape into small balls, using a level tablespoon of dough for each. Bake on ungreased baking sheet in slow (300 degrees F) oven until done (about 20 minutes). Remove from baking sheet and cool on cake rack.
These cookies are good frosted with a little powdered sugar/milk frosting. You can even use a little food coloring and tint these a bit, if you like and you can decorate them with candy decorations, coconut, nuts, etc. Whatever suits your fancy!
