Russian tea cakes is the easiest cookie to make. I make mine with walnuts and butter that gives just enough crunch while still crumbly.
1 Cup softened butter
2 1/4 Cup flour
1/2 Cup powder sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup walnut pieces
1//4 teaspoon salt
2 Cups powder sugar to roll cookies in
Preheat oven to 380
Mix butter, flour, powder sugar, vanilla, and salt mix until soft dough forms. Mix in walnuts. Form into one inch ball set on cookie sheet and bake for 12-13 minutes or just until starting to brown.
Roll Warm cookies in powdered sugar after they are cool roll them again.
