1. In a bowl, cream the butter.

2. In a separate, larger bowl, sift together the powdered sugar, flour, ½ tsp cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.

3. Add the flour mixture to the soft butter to make a moderately stiff dough.

4. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until chilled through completely.

5. Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch balls.

6. Place the balls onto a greased baking sheet and bake on medium - high temperature oven for 8 - 12 minutes.

7. In a shallow bowl, combine the powdered sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon for coating.

8. While the tea cakes are still warm, roll them into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

9. Set them aside to cool, then roll once more in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.


Notes: This dough may chill overnight if covered with plastic wrap. The finished product cookie will be much like Mexican wedding cookies or Russian tea cakes.


Substitutions: Butter/Margarine.
