Russian Tea Cookies
1 Cup Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
6 Tablespoons Confectioners’ Sugar
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts
⅓ 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.
