Butterballs

Butterballs  “Butterball cookies are famous around the world.  They are also known  as Russian Tea Cakes, Mexican Wedding Cakes, and many other variations from other countries. When my mother could trust me by myself in the kitchen, this was one of the first recipes I made back in the 1960’s.  I haven’t found another butterball recipe with this same great buttery taste.  It is very delicate and not overpowering with sugar.    Enjoy!”
