Russian Tea Cakes (my all time favorite cookie!)

1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 cup nuts
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar (hold out for rolling baked cookies in)

Mix all ingredients and cool dough in fridge.  Roll into bite-sized balls and bake at 350 degrees for 9 or 10 minutes.  Roll hot cookies in powdered sugar.  Cool.  Roll in powdered sugar once before serving.  Yum!  

Note:  You can freeze this dough.  I like to make a big batch and then I can bake a pan of cookies in a hurry. These are also commonly referred to as Mexican Wedding Cakes or snowballs.


  1. Christmas is not the same without your good cookies. BTW I just finished the ones you sent with us. YUMMMMMM they were good.

  2. My mouth is watering for these...I might just have to make them......yummmmmmmy yummmmmmy
