Kids In The Kitchen

Russian Tea Cakes (The EASY way)
This article is part of How2Blogger’s Super Sexy Holiday ‘How To’ Contest which you can see at How2Blogger’s ‘How To’ site.
I love baking Christmas Cookies with my boys- Especially when I can find ways to make them easier and quicker. (Boys are not known for their patience - they want them and they want them NOW!)

Ingredients

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® Create 'n Bake® refrigerated sugar cookies
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour, pecans and vanilla until well blended.
2.Shape dough into 54 (1-inch) balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheets. Cool slightly on cooling rack.
4.Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar; cool on cooling rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.
