These Russian Tea Cakes are so easy to make and they are my absolute favorite Christmas cookie recipe! They’re made with pecans and then rolled in powdered sugar after baking for a light, tender cookie you’re sure to love. I always make a few batches to hand out for gifts around the holidays and everyone always loves them.
These buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies have so many names. What do you call these cookies? I’ve heard a variety of different terms for classic Russian Tea Cakes. Some call them snowball cookies or Mexican Wedding Cakes, and I’ve even heard some call them butter balls.
