Russian Tea Cakes
This is a great and simple recipe.
1 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts (most recipes use walnuts but we prefer pecans)
1/3 cup powdered sugar for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla.
Combine 6 Tbsp. powdered sugar and flour.
Stir into the butter mixture until just blended.
Mix in chopped nuts.
Roll dough into 1″ balls and place 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 12-14 minutes. When cool, roll in remaining powdered sugar.
Note: There is no baking soda or baking powder added because it is a short cookie.
