Russian Nutcakes Recipe

A girlfriend of mine from the states, made these great little teacakes when I was visiting and I loved them so much I asked her for the recipe to bring home and make for myself. I forgot I had it for a while and when I found it in a long forgotten handbag, I got it out and made them to see if they were as nice as I remembered. I am happy to say they are and as they are just so easy to make, I am sure you will enjoy making them yourself. There are not a lot of ingredients in them but they taste really yummy.


250g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
125g icing sugar - sifted
2 1/2 cups SR flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt


Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla together.
Mix flour and salt together and stir into batter.
Add nuts and mix all together.
Chill until cold.
Set oven temperature to about 190C in a fan forced oven.
Roll into balls and place on an ungreased oven tray and bake for around 10 - 12 minutes.
Take out and roll in a little icing sugar while still warm. When cool, roll again in icing sugar.
Can be stored in an airtight container for several days.
