Today I am excited to share a yummy cookie recipe with you all.

I don’t know about you, but once December 1st hits,
I go into Christmas treat mode.

My little Miss and I venture into the kitchen and are not seen for days
for a while. We love baking and baking at Christmas time is 100 times more fun!

One of our favorite cookie recipes, at Christmas time, goes by many names. I have heard them called Mexican Wedding cookies, Russian Tea cookies, and Christmas Tea Cookies.

We just call them  


Thye may not be beautiful, but they make up
for that with their amazing taste!

Want to make some of your own?

Here’s How

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream 1 cup butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Add remaining ingredients. 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts. Roll into balls about the size of a small walnut. Bake for 12 15 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm.

I hope you have a chance to try out this recipe this holiday season.

I have even included a printable recipe card for you.

Happy Baking!
