Russian Teacakes (Snowballs)

These are not rich cookies. In fact my wife is Filipino and their culture typically does not like rich sweet deserts, but goes nuts over these cookies. I have to make so many for her big family to keep them happy.

Ingredients for 20 servings

1 cup soft butter

1/2 cub powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/4 cup flour

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

3 tbsp flax seed (optional)

Preparation

1.

Mix all of the above ingredients throughly until it is sticking together. Roll into balls or I use an ice cream scoop that has a thumb push out to make dome shaped cookies with flat bottoms; this is much easier and creates perfect size cookies.

2.

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet until set, but not brown at 400 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.

3.

After taking out while warm roll in extra powdered sugar until fully covered. Let cool and enjoy. This makes about 20-24 cookies for one batch depending on size.
