Russian Tea Cakes

As promised, I made Russian Tea Cakes to compare to the Hazelnut Tea Cakes I made earlier in the week.  And yep, I'd have to say I like them a little bit more.  And they are a cinch to throw together - WAY easier than pie!

Russian Tea Cakes

1 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1/4 tsp. salt (I used a 1/2 tsp salt and unsalted butter)
3/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts

Combine ingredients and shape into 1-inch balls.  Place on cookie sheets and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on the pans for 5 minutes, then roll in powdered sugar.  Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
