This month the ‘Around the world in 12 dishes’ country is Russia.
I decided to make Russain tea cakes so the kids could get really involved with the preparation.
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups plain flour
- Icing sugar
- Mix everything together ( the butter needs to be quite soft ) to form a dough like mixture.
- Leave in the fridge for about an hour.
- Roll into small balls and bake at 175 degrees celsius for 15 minutes.
Once baked roll in icing sugar whilst still warm.
We added some chocolate to a couple of the teacakes, and they were AMAZING!
Z and S love anything they can get their hands dirty with so these were fantastic for them.
