Preparation

From: arielle@taronga.com (Stephanie da Silva) Date: Wed, 19 Jan 1994 07:19:03 GMT Ive noticed that people request Russian Tea Cakes a lot. Now I just read somewhere that these are the same things as Mexican Wedding Cookies. I havent found out if this is true or not. But in the meantime, heres a recipe. Beat butter until light and fluffy, then beat in 2 tablespoons of the sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and almonds. Gradually add flour, beating to blend thoroughly. Pinch off pieces of dough the size of large walnuts and rolls between your palms into round balls. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten each ball slightly. Bake in a 275F oven until very lightly browned (about 45 minutes). Let cool on baking sheets until lukewarm. Sift half the remaining powdered sugar onto a large sheet of wax paper. Roll each cookie gently in sugar. Wtih your fingers, pack more sugar all over cookies to a depth of about 1/8 inch. Place cookies on wire racks and dust generaouly with more powdered sugar; let cool completely. Store in airtight containers, layter between sheets of wax paper. Makes 3 dozen.

I loved the flavor of these cookies but they were so crumbly and broke apart with the lightest of touches. If I can figure out how to make them more firm then I would make again
