Sugar Cookies and Russian Tea Cakes

For those of you that know me and my baking, you know that these are some of my tried and true fall backs. I didn't even take any pics! Although, I will be making some Russian Tea Cakes this week, so should get a couple then. And will make the sugar cookies again for Santa on Christmas Eve with the kids, so will get some then. Here are the recipes though :)

Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla (or almond)
2 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 c flour

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and milk. Combine dry ingredients, and add to creamed. Roll out to 3/8" and cut our desired shapes. Bake at 350 for 8-10 min. Make sure you don't overbake!

Russian Tea Cakes

1 c butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 c flour chocolate chips for filling

Preheat oven to 400. Mix the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and flour to make dough. Wrap dough around a chocolate chip to make a one inch ball with a filled center. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 min. Can roll in powdered sugar after baking, or roll in sugar crystal sprinkles before baking.
