Russian Tea Cakes

Hey Everyone!

Today I made Russian Tea Cake Cookies. They are not the most healthy thing, but every once in a while, you have to splurge. And it’s officially the holiday season, so I have no regrets!

This recipe has a few names, i’ve heard people call them, mexican wedding balls, snowball cookies, hungarian nut balls… the list goes on and on. In the end, they all taste the same.

Whenever my Mom and I make Russian Tea Cakes, we use this recipe.ย This recipe says to use any nuts, but we always use pecans. I like these cookies because they are crunchy, not too sweet, and fall apart as you bite into them. Also, the recipe calls for an entire cup of butter and everything tastes better with butter, right?

When I made these cookies, I decided to make a vine out of it! Click on the link below to check it out!

Some of my other favorite cookies to make during the holiday season are peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. The oatmeal cookies sound healthy, but they are really just as sugar-filled as all the other cookies.

If you ever want to try the oatmeal cookies that I love, check out this recipe from Oceanspray.ย If you make them, let me know what you think!

What are your favorite cookies to make during the holiday season? I’d love to try them myself.

Have a good week everyone!
