RUSSIAN TEA CAKES

Makes about 48

These buttery melt-in-your-mouth cookie balls go by many names in recipe collections, including Mexican Wedding Cakes. They always contain finely chopped nuts and are twice rolled in powdered sugar. A holiday favorite. Toasted coconut can also be added to the dough.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, macadiam)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Powdered sugar

Preparation

  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
    Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together.
    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly on wire rack.
    Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar; cool on wire rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.
