Christmas Cookies

Russian Tea CookiesThis holiday season, I thought I’d share one of my favorite cookie recipes from Christmas growing up.  My great aunt made these every year, and I really looked forward to them.

Russian Tea Cookies

1 lb. Butter
1/2c Confectioner’s Sugar
2t Vanilla
4c Flour
2c Pecans, Finely Chopped

Cream the butter.  Add sugar, beat until light.  Add vanilla.  Add flour and mix well.  Fold in nuts.  Use a small ice cream scoop to make balls about 1″ in diamater, place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Cool slightly then roll in confectioner’s sugar.  Makes about 6 dozen cookies.

Enjoy, and happy holidays from all of us at Wood Palace Kitchens!
