Yes!  It’s the holiday season which brings a plethora of delicious baked goodies.  A few days ago, I baked some of my family’s favorites:  Russian Teacakes and sugar cookies.

Enjoy making this cookie recipe with your family!

Russian Teacakes

(Thanks to the 1950’s version of Betty Crocker)


1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp.  vanilla

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

powder sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla.  Mix in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together.

Shape dough into 1 -inch balls.  Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until set but not brown, 10-12 minutes.

Roll in powdered sugar while warm/ cool.  Roll in powdered sugar again when cool.  Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Enjoy the festivities of the season!
