Russian tea Cakes


 Russian tea Cakes

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (usually pecans or walnuts)

Soften the butter, blend the powdered sugar in with vanilla. Mix your flour and salt together and add gradually to your sugar butter mix. Last add the chopped nuts. Let the dough cool in the fridge for about 30-45 min. When cooled roll them into about 1 inch balls. They don't rise when you bake them so you don't have to separate them alot on the baking sheet. Baking them at 400 for about 10mins. As soon as they come out roll them around in powdered sugar. Let them cool then roll them again in powdered sugar. That is it, very easy yummy cookie recipe.
