Snowball Cookies

Making Snowball Cookies (Russian Teacakes) has been a family tradition for every Holiday!


2 cups (4 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 ½  cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 ½  cups finely chopped nuts


Mix margarine and powdered sugar and vanilla.  Mix in flour, salt and nuts until dough holds together.
Shape into 1-inch balls.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet  at 400° for 10 - 12 minutes until set, not brown. 

Roll in powdered sugar while warm; cool. Roll in powdered sugar again.  Makes 6 dozen.
