Russian Tea Cakes are rich and buttery cookies with a texture similar to shortbread. They’re quick and easy to make and very festive coated in powdered sugar, which looks like snow!
For the last day of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats even, I wanted to share a cookie from my childhood.
My mom has made Russian Tea Cakes/Snowball Cookies every Christmas for as long as I can remember. Which, oddly enough, has nothing to do with the fact that my family is Russian on my dad’s side and “Russian” is in the title of these cookies. (And I have no idea whether these cookies are authentically Russian or not!)
My mom usually refers to them as Butter Balls anyway, lol.…
