Russian Tea Cake Cookies

I find it interesting that these cookies are known by a few names.  Along with Russian Tea Cakes, some call them Mexican Wedding Cookies.  Dead easy and SUPER yummy! Enjoy

Russian Tea Cakes

SUPER easy – freezable and mailable.  I used pecans because that’s what I had on hand, but I think walnuts would be wonderful.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Butter Softened
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 1/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 Cups Walnuts FINELY chopped (or Pecans – both work)
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 C Powdered Sugar for rolling cookies in after baking

Instructions

  1. In a bowl cream together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla

  2. Fold in flour, finely chopped nuts, and salt.  Mix until just combined well

  3. roll dough into 1″ balls and place 1″ apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. 

  4. Bake for 12 minutes until set – but not brown

  5. Let cool AT LEAST 10 minutes on a wire rack, then roll in powdered sugar and let sit.  The powdered sugar might get a bit sticky – but it will firm back up if you leave them alone.

  6. Enjoy!
