an easy recipe for Russian tea cakes covered in powdered sugar - great Christmas cookies recipe!

Does anyone really get tired of cookies? I don’t think so. If you haven’t caught on yet, this month is Christmas cookie month. So many new recipes to share with you – this one being an old recipe that’s tried and true. This is my mom’s favorite recipe for Russian tea cakes, a cookie that she makes every Christmas. It comes directly from her treasured Betty Crocker cookbook with just a few tweaks. Using powdered sugar is key as that gives the recipe its soft but dense goodness.
Happy Thursday and thanks for following along!
