Or were these what you meant? These are what I consider tea cakes:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar, plus 1 cup sifted, for rolling
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
    localoffersIcon
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup ground walnuts, preferably toasted*

*Note: To toast the walnuts, bake them at 350 degrees until they are aromatic and lightly golden, about 8–10 minutes.

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Have ready ungreased cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the butter, the ½ cup confectioners' sugar, the cinnamon, and salt on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. On low speed, gradually beat in the flour and then the nuts just until mixed. The dough will be stiff and somewhat crumbly.

Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll between your palms into 1-inch balls. Place on the cookie sheets, spacing them about 1½ inches apart.

Bake in the center of the oven until the tops are set to the touch and the bottoms are lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheets until they are still warm but are firm enough to handle without crumbling.

Spread 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar on a plate. Roll the warm cookie in the sugar, coating them evenly. Set on wire racks to cool completely. When the cookies have cooled, roll them again lightly in the sugar.

This recipe is from an old set of cards I have "My Great Recipies".

Prep time: 15 mins             Baking time: 10 to 12 mins

Chilling time: 1 hour           Oven temperature:  400 F

Tea Cookies

For 30 cookies you will need:

1 Cup soft butter or margarine

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 Cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 Cup finely chopped pecans

Extra fine powdered sugar


1.  In medium bowl, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together until smooth

and creamy.

2. Mix in flour and salt until well combined. Add the nuts, mixing well.

Cover and chill at least 1 hour or until dough is stiff enough to shape into

marble-sized balls. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheets.

3. Bake at 400 F for 10-12 mins or until set, but NOT brown. While still warm 

roll in powdered sugar. Let cool then roll in powdered sugar again.
