Russian teacakes

These are a family favorite. I don't remember a Christmas without them. Some people call them Mexican wedding cookies.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


1 cup of butter

1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar

2 1/2 cups of flour

3/4 cup of walnuts, finely chopped

Beat butter, confectioner's sugar and vanilla. Beat in walnuts and flour.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Bake 10 minutes until firm (they will be slightly brown on the bottom). Immediately after removing from the oven, roll completely in confectioner's sugar.
