Irish Christmas Tea Cakes

Some people call these Russian Tea Cakes or Mexican Wedding Cookies, but at my house we call them Irish Christmas Tea Cakes. Everyone loves them.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 all-purpose flour
3/4 cup finely pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt
More Powdered sugar


1 Heat oven to 400ºF.
2 Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together.
