Russian Tea Cakes are also known as "Mexican Wedding Cookies" and "Snowballs", but whatever name you want to give them, they're one of the most beloved special-occasion and Christmas cookies!

When I go on my annual Christmas cookie baking frenzy, these are the ones I make in several batches all at once. They are always the most popular, so they're the first to disappear. They are perfectly sweet and vanilla-y; they practically melt in your mouth and go great with a cup of coffee for dessert.

Last night I made three batches of them - so much that I had to use a large metal cooking pot because none of my mixing bowls were large enough! (Pic below). I love recipes that don't require fancy gadgets and get down to the basics of baking, exactly like this one.

These are already a time-consuming cookie to make, so the recipe below is for one good batch.
