Russian Tea Cakes

 

Ingredients:

1 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 tablespoons confectioners' Sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup chopped walnuts

1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla until smooth. Combine the 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and flour; stir into the butter mixture until just blended. Mix in the chopped walnuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, roll in remaining confectioners' sugar. I also like to roll mine in the sugar a second time.
