Globe Cookies aka Russian Teacakes or Mexican Wedding Cakes

This recipe this works well if you make the dough one night and refrigerate overnight to bake the next night.

Globe Cookies aka Russian Teacakes or Mexican Wedding Cakes

Preheat oven to 400°F. Use ungreased cookie sheets.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sifted confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/4 cups King Arthur Flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts, almonds seem to work best

Roll cookies in: confectioner's sugar (messy) or colored fine sugar.  The colored sugar bakes in and is far less messy, also can be quite pretty.

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla. Measure flour by dipping method, stir in salt. Mix the two, then mix in nuts.

Chill dough.

Roll dough into 1" balls, then roll in sugar of your choice. Place on baking sheet. These cookies will not spread.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, they should only barely darken.
