Russian Tea Cake

Life is a festival only to the wise.
A unique Diwali Sweet!

Russian tea cakes bring back a lot of memories to me. I first made it when I was much younger before I was married. It was the time I was trying to learn to cook :) It came out sooooo well that many people still remember it and talk about it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

Prep & Cooking: 35 mts
Servings 30


  butter-1 cup
  vanilla extract -1 teaspoon
  confectioners' sugar -6 tablespoons
  all-purpose flour- 2 cups
  chopped walnuts -1 cup
  confectioners' sugar for decoration -1/3 cup
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla until smooth. Combine the 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and flour; stir into the butter mixture until just blended. Mix in the chopped walnuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, roll in remaining confectioners' sugar. I also like to roll mine in the sugar a second time.
