Butter Balls

17 Dec

Russian Tea Cakes

It is snowing and I am housebound, the usual winter gluttony has commenced.

So , since I feel like a butter ball I might as well make some.

These are for Christmas so I won’t touch them.

Everything else in the house is up for grabs or should I say available for my next snack.

2 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup sifted confectionary sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

One cup unsalted butter

One teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Cream the butter with the sugar.

Add the flour,  salt,  vanilla

Then the nuts

Chill the dough one hour.

Roll into nickle size balls at 375 for ten minutes.

Bake on the top shelf

While the cookies are warm, not hot, roll in powdered sugar.

Wait till the cookies are cooler then roll again in the powdered sugar.

These cookies melt in your mouth and then you have the little chew from the nuts.

A cup of tea and some dental floss is great.
