Russian Teacakes

�1 cup softened butter or margarine
�1/2 cup powdered sugar
�1 tsp vanilla
�1/4 tsp salt
�2 1/4 cup flour
�3/4 finely chopped nuts

************************************
Tip: have more powdered sugar on hand for the part where you roll them! The 1/2 cup of powdered sugar mentioned above goes into the dough!

In large bowl combine butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt on low speed of mixer about one minute; blend well. Gradually add flour until just combined. Stir in nuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls; place about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet (ungreased). Bake at 350 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes. While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool; re-roll in powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Why do MEN have to be jerks all the time? I had to give FH an early Christmas gift today seeing how he wanted to take OATMEAL and we didn't have anything that would keep it hot until he got to work. As he was opening it he kept saying "stop wasting money on S*** I don't need" once he got out of packaging he said "I guess it's something I do need after all"

Just as a reminder that Christmas is slowly creeping up! :lol:

I made a batch of Christmas cookies last week and they are almost gone now.

My favorite and simplest recipe: Shortbread Cookies:
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

Both I and my dogs love these. HOWEVER I was dismayed to realize that I had run out of flour! Flour, the staff of life, and I was 1/2 a cup short of what I needed! I substituted pancake mix for that last 1/2 cup, and it worked fine, but a trip to the grocery store is in my near future!

@SPedigrees I just got a 10# bag of ALL PURPOSE Flour at my closest WALMART the other day for less than $5 which I thought was an excellent buy.
All set up for the cookie baking to begin but I'm technically starting with no bake cookies only because while they are doing they're thing in the fridge I can get started on the baking kinds. Don't have any cookie cooling racks so make shift (2nd pic up next to wall)
