Russian Tea Cakes

Russian Tea cakes, Mexican Wedding Cookies or Snowballs ~ call them whatever you want, these tender little cookies coated in confectioners' sugar are melt in your mouth yummy!

Russian Tea Cakes


INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1⁄4 cups sifted flour
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 cup chopped walnuts
powdered sugar (for rolling baked cookies in)

DIRECTIONS

Cream together butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy; stir in vanilla.

Whisk together flour and salt; add gradually to butter mixture; stir in chopped nuts.
Chill dough if it seems too soft.

Form dough into 1 1/4" balls and place onto parchment-lined or ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or just until the cookies start to turn light golden-brown; remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. remove them from baking sheets and roll, a few at a time, in powdered sugar until evenly coated; cool cookies completely on wire racks.

Cookies may be rolled in powdered sugar a second time once cooled to room temperature.

NOTE: Forming dough into 1" balls will increase yield to 48 cookies.
