final Christmas Cookie recipe

Here you go... Mom's Nut Balls. The recipe is written down in my dad's handwriting, but I thought it was a little distressing to call them Dad's Nut Balls. Maybe we should just call them Russian Tea Cakes.

1 C butter
½ C powdered sugar
½ T. vanilla
2 1/8 C. flour
¼ tsp. salt
¾ C. finely chopped nuts

Mix in order listed. Chill dough. Roll into 1” balls. Place 2” apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes. While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool. Roll again.

Makes 2.5 dozen

Merry Christmas to all!

Oh--these are my FAVORITE Christmas cookies, but no one made any this year! I might have to call them "New Years Nut Balls" and make some myself this week! Thanks for the recipe!
