1 Cup Butter
1/3Cup Sugar
2 Tsp water
2 Tsp Vanilla
2 Cups AP Flour
1 Cup Nuts ( Walnuts or pecan) Chopped fine


Mix Butter & Sugar first then mix in water and Vanilla then the flour & Nuts.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 20 minute & watch not to burn cool cookies and then roll in powdered sugar

Questions, Comments & Reviews

It looks similar to my family's recipe. Could it have come from yours? I once tried a Russian cookie that wasn't anything like Russian Tea cakes. Can't seem to find a recipe, though. They sure were delicious!
