You don’t need to be Russian

2 Dec

to eat these tea cakes! Day 2 is the cookie my mom never failed to make every Christmas, so no doubt it made the countdown.

Here you go…


Take two sticks of butter (room temp, aka leave them over before you go to work to make this at night), 1/2 cup of sugar a dash of vanilla and some sprinkles of salt and mix together. I just used a spatula but feel free to whip it up with a blender.

Then gradually add 1 cup of flour. Mix well. Make the dough into a massive ball and wrap it in celofane. Leave in the frig for at least an hour or like me – all night!

After the dough is chilled roll into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 350F. After bake remove after a few minutes. Place in bowl of powdered sugar. Roll the cookie around in the sugar. Then after about 20 minutes place in a plastic bag with more powdered sugar and store in this way. This will allow for multiple layers of powdered sugar goodness!
