And it’s back to work, but thank goodness it’s only a 3 day work week, woohoo! If you saw my last post, you’ll notice that we had a WHITE CHRISTMAS! For those of you who didn’t have a White Christmas and would like some resemblance of “white snow” in your life, I thought I’d share a recipe from my mother-in-law’s stash, it’s one that I shared with a few bloggers in the Pizelles and All Things Ami “Winter Recipe Exchange“! I bring to you the delectable (and so simple to make)…
(also known as Russian Tea Cakes)
– 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
– 1/4 cup powdered sugar
– 1 cup chopped pecans
– 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
– 1 cup flour
1) Cream together butter and 1/ cup powdered sugar.
2) Add pecans, vanilla and flour. Mix well.
3) Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.
4) Bake in a 400 F degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
5) Roll warm balls in remaining powdered sugar to coat all over. Allow balls to cool and enjoy!
Linking up this one to Sweet Shot Tuesdays because looking at it makes me want to bake more!
My mom calls these Russian Tea Cakes 😛 I swear I ate so many of these during the holidays!

I love these! We had a VERY white Christmas here in France – it was beautiful 🙂
Well, Christmas wasn’t white but the day after was! Yesterday we were snowed in and today I don’t think we’ll be going anywhere too fast. Maybe, in fact, I’ll spend my morning making these. Just because they look delicious and I can.
