These Russian tea cakes are also known as Mexican wedding cakes, butterballs and finally snowball cookies because of the icing sugar dusting they have. Whatever you call them they are a tasty treat to eat.
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Very easy to make and absolutely beautiful. Love the walnuts and the fact that the teacakes aren't too sweet as they are covered in icing sugar anyway - definitely will be making these all year round not just at Xmas - 28 Oct 2010
