Diva Tasting: More Cookies for the holidays…

Russian Tea Cookies


1 Cup Butter

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

6 Tablespoons Confectioners’ Sugar

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 Cup Chopped Walnuts

Cup Confectioners’ Sugar For Decoration


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

Step 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.

Step 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.

I love having a full plate of these on my afternoon tea trays. I always save some for myself later.
