Russian Tea Balls Recipe @pinch

Tender and buttery, these Russian tea cake cookies are delicious. They literally melt in your mouth. Filled with chopped walnuts, there is a nice crunch. The cookie itself isn't overly sweet. Generously dusting them with powdered sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness. Some may know these as snowball cookies or Mexican wedding cookies. We agree with Terry that they are a must havemake at Christmas. The recipe makes a lot of cookies that can be given as gifts. My mom has been making these for Christmas ever since I can remember! It is just not Christmas until I make them.
