I absolutely love these little cookies! They are so cute and extremely delicious. The cookies are rolled in twice in powdered sugar! In addition, Russian Tea Cakes are very easy to make. And I didn't have to use an egg substitute for these cookies because the recipe does not use eggs!
Russian Tea Cakes
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract (or vanilla)
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly on wire rack. Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar; cool on wire rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.
Well, I was a little disappointed with my cookie poll. I didn't get very many votes on it. So I have reopened it. PLEASE vote for your favorite cookie!
