    Dairy, Egg & Nut Free Russian Teacakes

    This delicious cookie recipe is an allergy~friendly version of Mexican Wedding Cakes. Traditional recipes include nuts in the ingredients, but here is a new version just in time for your holiday baking this season!


    1 c. dairy free margarine
    ½ c. powdered sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    2 ¼ c. all purpose flour
    ¼ tsp. salt
    1 c. powdered sugar (for rolling)

    Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine margarine, powdered sugar and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Stir in flour and salt until dough comes together into a pliable ball.

    Shape dough into one inch balls and place onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. While the cookies are still warm but cool enough to handle roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely and roll in sugar again.
