Delicious Russian Tea Cakes

Russian Tea Cakes, Mexican Wedding Cakes, Noel Nut Balls....whatever you wanna call these things, one thing's for sure- They are DELICIOUS!!! These are the cookies I was supposed to make for my cookie exchange. They are so simple and I love the slightly sweet/salty flavor they have.

 Cream 1 cup of butter with 1 tsp vanilla

Mix 2 cups of flour with 6 Tbsp powdered sugar, and about 1/4 tsp salt

Blend flour mixture with butter until just combined

Chop 1 cup pecans

 Blend nuts in cookie dough

 Roll dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 minutes

Roll in powdered sugar! I did it twice...once right out of the oven so the sugar melted...and then again after the cookies completely cooled. These are TO DIE FOR!!! These made about two dozen cookies...and there's probably half a dozen left LOL!!!

Love, Kailee

P.S. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow when I post a GIVEAWAY!!!!
