Russian Tea Cakes
"Classic, old-fashioned Christmas cookies! Also called "Snowball Cookies," these little round Russian Tea Cakes are delicate and tender, nutty, buttery balls of shortbread dough rolled in a festive blizzard of powdered sugar. A holiday dessert tray just wouldn't be the same without them! One of our family's absolute favorite homemade cookie recipes, these festive Russian Tea Cakes couldn't be easier to make. There's no need to wait until the holidays, either -- the simple shortbread cookies are delicious at any time of year! You'll love the buttery dough that's studded with tiny bits of walnuts, giving the classic cookies a slightly nutty, toasted flavor. The cookies themselves aren't very sweet, so they are a perfect contrast to the powdered sugar exterior. "
