Russian wedding cookies

July 2, 2015

My mom recently helped me make more than 400 cookies for her and my dad's 50th wedding anniversary party. She was kind enough to make a batch of amazing Russian wedding tea cakes, from a recipe given to her by a friend long before she met my dad. There are many things that go into making a marriage last 50 years, and making delicious treats like this is surely one of them.

Russian Wedding Tea Cakes

1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioner's sugar)
2 cups sifted flour 
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp water 
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

Cream together butter and powdered sugar. Mix in remaining ingredients. Roll into walnut-size balls. 

Bake on ungreased baking sheets for 25-35 minutes at 275 degrees. You can lightly grease the cookie sheets, but I don't think they would stick with all that butter!

Roll in powdered sugar while still warm. Enjoy!
