What are Russian Tea Cakes?
Russian Tea Cakes are also known as Mexican Wedding Cakes or Snowball Cookies. The cookie dough contains nuts, usually walnuts or pecans which gives the cookies a nutty flavor and slight crunch.
The butter in the cookie dough makes the cookies tender and powdery and they almost dissolve in your mouth. The cookies are rolled in powdered sugar twice to give them a white coating making them look like snowballs.
These Russian tea cakes are rolled in powdered sugar for a sweet finish and a snowball-like appearance. My grandmother “Bubba” brought this Russian tea cake recipe with her when she came from Lithuania, and now my family has made it for many generations.
I pass it on in the true spirit of the holiday season!
