Russian Tea Cookies

These shortbread cookies were an experiment a few years ago when we wanted to take cookies to a friend who lived in Russia for a few years. They were a delicious hit. They are different from most typical cookies, they are crumbly versus chewy, but they are delicious with a cup of herbal tea or hot cocoa. My kids LOVE to make these because they get to roll them in the sugar. I love them because they are so fast to make and don't require constant watching like other cookies. A win all around!

You will need: 


  • 1 Cup Softened Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 Cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Sugar Sprinkles
Mix together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until well combined. Add the flour and salt, mixing again. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and then roll them in the sugar sprinkles. Bake the cookies on a GREASED cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Cookie should be stiff but not brown. 

Have you ever tried these kind of cookies before?

I have not tried these types of cookies before, but they look good. I do a lot of baking, but cookies aren't my specialty. My Mom and all of my aunts are experts at cookie-making, but that talent skipped me unfortunately.
