I photographed some yesterday and it was a time well spent. As I am writing this I am glad I spend some quality time getting into baking because I am able to share it with you. The flip side or con of holiday seasons are we are always on a sugar high. Now then, what is the point cribbing.. lets all indulge and have some fun and then go on a diet the next week, what do you say? Anyways, here is Russion Tea cakes for you.. I remember something similar called nan cut when in India. I have made those and its pretty much the same if you avoid nuts.
Butter - 1 cup
Confectioners sugar - 1/2 cup
Vanilla - 1 tspn
All purpose flour - 2 1/4 cups
Salt - 1/4 tspn
Nuts(add your preferred one I added pecans) - 3/4 cup finely chopped
1. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla together. I used a hand blender you could do without it as well.
2. Add flour, salt and nuts and incorporate together until the dough holds together to make small balls
3. Place the doubh balls on ungreased cookie sheets
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set but not brown in a pre heated 400F
