Recipe: Russian Tea Cakes

 This is a lovely, nutty, shortbread cookie that my family loves.

Russian Tea Cakes:
1 cup (250g) butter
1/2 cup (70g) powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
2 1/4 cups (290g) flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup (75g) chopped nuts
more powdered sugar for the outside

Cream butter. 

Add powdered sugar, vanilla, flour, salt and nuts and mix or stir together. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs. 

Press the dough together and roll into balls. Place on lined baking sheet. 

Bake at 350°F or 180°C for 12-15 minutes. 

Toss in powdered sugar while still hot using a fork. Toss in powdered sugar again. 

These are lovely and crumbly and buttery.
Not too sweet and the nuts add the perfect amount of crunch.
